Where do you work as a Physio and what type of clients do you treat on a normal day?
For most of the last twelve years, I have worked at Lifecare practices in Murdoch, Applecross and Willetton, treating 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. Right now I’m taking time to focus on FitRight business management and class teaching, as well as spending time with my two small children! I hope to return to clinical physiotherapy work soon.
Which FitRight classes do you currently teach?
I teach the Baby&Me, Toddler&Me and Empower 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 like minded expectant and new Mums every week!
