How did you begin working with maternity and gynaecology patients?

As a Specialist Pelvic Health Physiotherapist I work with women with pelvic health concerns prior to, during or after pregnancy. I have 13 years experience within the NHS and private practice as both a musculoskeletal and women’s health physiotherapist.

I work closely with Integrated continence and colorectal services and have extensive knowledge in the management of bladder and bowel problems during and after pregnancy.

I also have a passion for helping expectant mums keep active during pregnancy, and postnatal mums return to exercise safely and confidently. During pregnancy my role most commonly involves the management pelvic girdle pain, symphysis pubis dysfunction and lower back pain.

What does your job involve?

My role postnatal involves helping ladies with painful or tight perineal or abdominal scar tissue, pelvic floor muscle weakness, obstetric anal sphincter injury, pelvic pain or symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse.

Postnatally one of my specialist services are ‘Mummy MOT’ assessments. These are a detailed physiotherapy assessment of posture, pelvic floor and the abdominal area.

My treatment approach combines lifestyle assessment, pelvic health physiotherapy approaches including pelvic floor muscle retraining and manual pelvic floor therapy, with external musculoskeletal assessment and treatment; incorporating the whole body into rehabilitating the problem area.

    What aspect of your job is the most rewarding?

    The most rewarding aspect of my job is feeling very privileged to be part of such an intimate time in a woman’s life. Many of the ladies I work with have never discussed these sensitive issues with anyone before and it is an honour to help them restore their pelvic health and meet their goals.

    I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and am a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.
