In this episode, fellow physiotherapist Dr. Rebecca Segraves and I discuss:

  • The lack of support for c-section recovery
  • How physiotherapists support patients in the hospital after other surgical procedures
  • How physiotherapists can support women after cesarean birth and how this can decrease complications, enhance recovery and improve mental wellbeing
  • The disparities Dr. Rebecca Segraves witnessed when working with the maternal population in hospital
  • The motivation behind her recent clinical commentary and how it has sparked change
  • Ways to initiate conversation around change in our current health care system

Rebeca Segraves, PT, DPT is a physical therapist and Board-Certified Women’s Health Clinical Specialist who has served individuals and families within the hospital and at home during pregnancy and immediately postpartum.

She has extensive experience with optimizing function during long-term hospitalizations for high-risk pregnancy and following perinatal loss and pregnancy termination. In the hospital and home health settings, she has worked with maternal care teams to maximize early recovery after delivery, including cesarean section, birth-related injuries, and following obstetric critical care interventions.

She is the founder of Enhanced Recovery After Delivery™, an obstetrics clinical pathway that maximizes mental and physical function during pregnancy and immediately postpartum with hospital and in-home occupational and physical therapy. Her vision is that every person will have access to an obstetric rehab therapist during pregnancy and within the first 6 weeks after birth, perinatal loss, and pregnancy termination regardless of their location or ability to pay.
