Women's Health Physiotherapy

Many Australian women will benefit from women's health physiotherapy at some point through their life. Conditions can affect women from adolescence to adulthood, pregnancy & post-partum, through & after menopause. 

In the safe environment of your own home,  I take the time to listen to your concerns, addressing each issue. Then together we can prioritise your goals, & integrate effective treatment solutions into your home & lifestyle. 

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Many women with pelvic dysfunction are suffering in silence, either unaware they have a solvable issue or not aware that help is available. Most people have not even heard of Women's Health Physiotherapy. 

Thankfully conservative management provided by experienced pelvic & women's health physiotherapist can treat & manage a wide range of women's concerns.  

My aim is to bring awareness to these issues & discuss with dignity the problems that people may shy away from. With discussion, acceptance & knowledge, comes empowerment. 

So if you or someone you know experiences any pelvic symptoms or you simply want to optimise your pelvic health to prevent issues, get in touch so you can keep you happy, your pelvis strong & your life healthy.

Pregnancy & Motherhood

The time of pregnancy & motherhood is a time of joy, anticipation, love & kodak moments.

Our amazing body changes considerably to grow, birth & nurture a little person. These changes are thanks to significant hormonal & postural changes.


Pregnancy hormones, such as relaxin, estrogen & progesterone, increase early in pregnancy in order to create space for the growing baby, acting along the abdominal wall & ribcage. They also prepare the pelvic joints & pelvic floor for childbirth. 

This softening of connective tissues & muscles in our body can lead to aches & pain in muscles and joints.  There is also increased strain experienced by the abdominal & pelvic tissues, & ligaments that suspend the pelvic organs (bladder, uterus & bowel). 

Postnatally, your body is undergoing further changes, healing wounds & stretched connective tissue of the abdomen & pelvic floor, & returning organs to their pre-pregnancy positions. Postural changes associated with early motherhood (think prolonged feeding positions, carrying postures, lack of sleep etc) may also cause issues which detract from the early motherhood experience. 

So if you are pregnant, recently given birth, experience any pains or incontinence, or if you simply want to learn more about your wonderful nurturing body, please get in touch.
