Masters Degree in Continence & Women’s Health Physiotherapy
Clinical Pilates Instructor
Where do you work as a Physio and what type of clients do you treat on a normal day?
After taking time off to have my son, I have returned to work one day a week at Southcare Physiotherapy in Murdoch. I treat people with a variety of different pelvic floor muscle issues (bladder and bowel problems, painful sex, vaginal prolapse etc) as well as doing pregnancy and postnatal assessments for exercise prescription and to manage common aches and pains in the childbearing year.
Which FitRight classes do you currently teach?
I teach the Baby&Me, Bump&Me, MumTime and FitRight Woman classes in Ardross.
What do you love most about being a FitRight Instructor?
I absolutely love feeling like I’m making a positive impact on someone’s experience in the childbearing year, through bonding with their baby, getting some ‘Me Time’ and keeping their body strong. I also love that I’m doing my little part to help prevent these women from suffering with common pelvic floor muscle related issues in the future – if we can empower them at this point to change habits and optimise their muscles, then at menopausal age hopefully they can avoid common problems like prolapse and incontinence that maybe their mothers and grandmothers suffered from. I never feel like FitRight instructing is work – I get to exercise and chat with likeminded expectant and new Mums every week!
