We are a group of Women’s Health Physiotherapists from The Physiotherapy Clinic and this is a passion project for us.
We have listened to many, many birth stories. We listen to them when they come in for their “6-week-check” because they give us an idea about what their bodies will be like. This is of course because your birth story undoubtedly affects the state of your body.
What we kept hearing was things like “I was induced at 39 weeks but I don’t know why”. Or “I had an epidural because the pain became too much but then I didn’t know how to push- so they used vacuumed or forceps to help get the baby out”.
What we realised was that some of these stories could have been different with just a little bit more knowledge.
Knowledge about their pregnant bodies and how to prepare for birth. Knowledge about birth itself. Knowledge about how to look after your body once you have had your baby. And knowledge about your own individual body and what needs to be done to make it perform the best it possibly can.
And so that is how Born Ready was created. And we are very proud of it.
