Calls for mandatory pelvic health checks for new mothers

From Nine To Noon, 9:35 am on 30 June 2020

A petition is gathering speed calling for new mothers to be entitled to routine pelvic health checks by a qualified pelvic health/women's health physiotherapist for pregnancy related issues and pelvic floor dysfunction. Lynn Freeman speaks with Rotorua based personal trainer Kirsty Watt, who started the petition, and pelvic health physio Liz Childs, who says the system is letting women down and setting them up for complications further down the line.
