Welcome to The Pregnancy Centre newsletter

It's our Birthday!!! We are turning 17 at The Pregnancy Centre, having been on line since October 1999!
Interestingly the issues are still the same for many women during and after pregnancy suffering from back and pelvic joint pain, pelvic floor problems, abdominal muscle separation and more.

The good news is that there is much more help available throughout Australia, and the world, with women's health and fitness professionals leading the way in helping women understand more through this time and seek help when they need it.

We founded this website on helping women know more about seeking help for healing physically, now knowing more on the emotional aspects than we did back then that are so important to address. I (Dianne) have recently had the honor of looking at a new course to help women who are suffering in silence in another area. The sensitive area of pregnancy loss. Meagan Schultz has created a course called "An Invitation to Grieve" following her experience with 7 miscarriages, inviting women on a journey to healing through her 21 day e-course. We link to this just below.

Thank you for supporting us, now, and for some of you throughout the time we've been online.

Do you have an abdominal gap?

Often the abdominal muscles separate during pregnancy, which is a normal change that can happen as your baby grows. If the gap gets too big however, the fibrous tissue between your abdominal muscles can stretch too much and the gap may not reduce easily in the first few months after your baby is born.
