Wellness Innovation Fund supports Pelvic Floor Program

CGMH staff and midwives hold large check

In a collaborative effort, Collingwood General and Marine Hospital (CGMH), Collingwood Well Baby Clinic, and Collingwood Pelvic Health, with the support of the CGMH Wellness Innovation Fund, are pleased to bring the community a multi-faceted Pelvic Floor Program. As of March 1, 2024, a CGMH physiotherapist will be seeing patients on Labour and Delivery after cesarean sections and for those who experience third or fourth degree tears.

The Collingwood Well Baby Clinic will house the outpatient portion, screening all patients who deliver in our community around three weeks postpartum for pelvic floor dysfunction. Patients who do not have private health benefits for physiotherapy and who are experiencing symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction will be offered an appointment with our program. Patients will be seen by a physiotherapist or a midwife with training in pelvic floor therapy. Learn more about the program here.
