We nurture women in pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum to be able to enjoy the amazing journey of motherhood.
We empower women to enjoy their pregnancy, have an easier labor, be stronger, and live life fully.
We treat women. . .
with back pain, hip pain, or pelvic pain.
You should not have to live with pain in pregnancy, postpartum, or any other time in your life. We can find the cause of your pain so that it does not affect your baby, your delivery, or your ability to care for your children now or in the future.
who have pain with intercourse.
Sex should always feel good. Continuing to have painful intercourse will only make pain worse.
who have been told, “it’s because you had kids”.
Living with pain, incontinence, or weakness is not the answer. You should not have to limit yourself now or ever.
who leak pee with coughing, jumping, sneezing, running, laughing, or any other activity.
Grown women should not be peeing outside of a toilet. End of story.
who leak pee on the way to the toilet, or when a strong urge is present.
Again, grown women should not be peeing outside of a toilet. Ever.
who feel weak because of rectus diastasis or other poor muscle performance.
You can get back to all the activities you choose, you just need some help figuring out why your muscles are not working the way they should.

About Kate Uttech, PT, DPT, WCS
Kate Uttech is passionate about helping women in pregnancy, labor, postpartum, and beyond. She helps women enjoy all stages of motherhood from pregnancy to grown children without feeling limited by their body.
She understands moms, the journey of motherhood, and the struggle to find time to care for yourself. That is why she started New Journey Physical Therapy.
Kate has seen too many women told that they need to live with weakness, pain, or incontinence, but no woman should have to live like that. Women’s bodies are amazing! We grow human beings and deserve to be nurtured and empowered through that journey.
Since graduating with the degree Doctor of Physical Therapy with honors from George Washington University, Kate has completed extensive continuing education in caring for women. She exclusively treats women, mostly around pregnancy and the complications that can occur for years after. She is dedicated to expanding her own knowledge in order to help more women live the life they deserve.
Kate utilizes manual therapy techniques, lifestyle and nutritional modifications, education on movement patterns, and exercise to help you live life without limitations. Kate will help to ease the aches, pains and discomforts of pregnancy. Kate treats low back pain, pelvic pain, sciatica, pubic symphysis pain, or sacroiliac joint dysfunction and promotes overall wellness to facilitate an easier and more comfortable pregnancy. Kate also provides labor preparation and education including personalized recommendations for delivery positions based on the symptoms you have and your ability to relax your pelvic floor in varying of positions.
Kate makes sure you are able to enjoy your new baby without pain. Kate can help if you are leaking urine (even just a few drops with coughing, jumping, exercising, or playing with your children), experiencing pain, having difficulty returning to exercise, or finding motherhood more physically exerting than you were prepared for.
Kate treats all conditions from the bottom half of your abdomen through the top half of your thighs (hip, pelvic, low back, and abdominal dysfunctions).
In her free-time, Kate enjoys an active healthy lifestyle with her husband, three daughters, and dog. Kate enjoys yoga, kickboxing, biking, hiking, skiing, and ice skating. In the past, Kate has played many team sports including soccer, field hockey, ice hockey, and rugby. Her favorite place to relax is at her family farm in Maine, ideally with plenty of lobster and wild blueberry pie.
