What is VHAB?

V HAB is the tried tested and tweaked by both Senior Women’s Health Physiotherapists and our Allied Health network. A program to provide us as EPs with the perfect and safe first 6 weeks for women starting back to exercise after birth, and safe for as early as 5 weeks postpartum. This course provides the “why” with details of pregnancy body changes, types of births and the effect of these births on the body. The course then details the prescreening for signs and symptoms of common Postnatal concerns like post-natal depression, Pelvic organ prolapse and DRAM. Furthermore, we provide guidance on how to build a referral network to collaborate with Allied Health Professionals to give women the best support back to full health and strength. Lastly, we provide our full comprehensive playbook for the 6 weeks post-natal return to exercise program, movement by movement, week by week with all the modifications provided for all the common obstacles mums experience. The practical component is more than 50% of this course so you’ll walk away confident of what and how to coach your new mums through this rehabilitation program. This is real, practical education that you can’t learn online. You have to get on the ground and feel it and then learn how to cue it to mums with birth injuries.
There is now a high level of evidence in research supporting controlled and early core rehabilitation to manage and reduce long-term women’s health issues.

We can’t wait to give you all of our knowledge, tips and a detailed 6 week program to give you the confidence to provide mums all over Australia with safe and appropriate exercise prescriptions after birth. With the V HAB program, there’s no guessing what to do with mums, plus more mums will return to exercise properly, not feel pressure to “bounce back” and reduce the stats on long-term incontinence and pelvic health-related treatments. That is our aim, a safe bridge back to exercise for all new mums.
