MY WHY

I’m a Mum, so I know how overwhelming pregnancy and post-birth recovery can be...

As a mum to three little girls, I’m no stranger to the ups and downs of the motherhood journey. The body changes, the baby brain, the seemingly never-ending sleep deficit? I’ve been there. And I got through every challenge using the same guidance that’s found in my programs.

As a perinatal physiotherapist I know my way around the pregnancy and post-natal block. For years, I’ve worked with women to help them prepare for and recover from birth.
This involved everything from assessing pregnancy aches & pains, and pelvic floor muscles to treating incontinence, abdominal muscle separation and painful sex after birth.

I’ve used a wide range of treatment strategies to help countless women have happy, healthy pregnancies. Each treatment has also supported new mamas in getting back to doing the things they love after childbirth, with a baby by their side.
