I have recently had a baby at Box Hill Hospital and had a wonderful experience overall.
I needed to access a physio due to pelvic pain during the pregnancy, so a referral was done. I got an appointment, but there was an 8 week wait to see a physio. By this time I was almost due so was the appointment was not going to be any help to me.
Now that I have had the baby I need a physio review 6 weeks after birth. A referral was made in hospital, but once again the next available appointment is in 11 weeks time. I am now looking at paying and seeing a physio privately as I need to be seen sooner than in 11 weeks.
It seems like there needs to be more appointments available in the physio department to women who come through maternity. Waiting 8 or more weeks is too many when pregnant or post birth.
