RSI in pregnancy

RSI in pregnancy and with a new baby
It is vital to keep your doctor, obstetrician, midwife, physiotherapist etc. informed of any problems that develop. This is not just to help deal with your RSI, but also to make sure that there is nothing else going on that needs investigating.

Plan for support. Relatives, friends and local community groups may all be able to help. Your local RSI support group may be able to put you in touch with other parents with RSI. There are lots of helpful tips that mothers have developed to cope with their condition and to make the most of the time with their new baby.

The following organisations offer information and advice on pregnancy issues, including medical conditions closely related to RSI.
