Sabrina Nieland

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist

Hello, my name is Sabrina Nieland. I am 40 years old and the mother of a 5-year-old

As a pelvic floor physiotherapist, I help mums during and after pregnancy with their physiological concerns, such as incontinence, back pain or diastasis recti.

Pregnancy can bring a wide variety physiological issues, such as incontinence due to the
increasing pressure of the baby on the bladder and pelvic floor, pelvic girdle pain caused by hormonal and postural changes, or simply discomfort and swollen feet due to water retention. For all these ailments, physiotherapy can help expecting mothers. I also educate pregnant women about childbirth and introduce them to appropriate exercises so that their birthing experience is as
uncomplicated as possible.

Once the baby is born, many mothers feel helpless: they have lost the connection to their core muscles, and they may have experienced painful birth injuries, such as perineal tears, caesarean section, or hematomas. The pelvic floor and the abdominal muscles may have not recovered either. Additionally, mums might be
stressed and exhausted in their new daily life with a newborn. In these situations, I am happy to help by showing them simple exercises to regain control of their pelvic floor and abdomen, by giving everyday tips and by
supporting the body's own healing processes.

I continue to support mothers through their recovery phase with postpartum classes, advanced courses, and therapies. I also offer specialty workshops and courses on topics such as pelvic floor dysfunction, diastasis recti and
returning to an exercise routine, as well as further individual treatment.

I now have 20 years of experience as a physiotherapist, and I am very happy to assist
you with your questions in my role as a physiotherapy expert with Lola&Lykke.
