“I remember feeling very overwhelmed after having my first daughter, Coco. I had a very quick labour and was sent home the next day from the hospital and told to continue with pelvic floor exercises. I went back through my antenatal class notes, but the focus was mainly around the baby, not the mother or her recovery. I genuinely couldn’t believe that there was no further information or support, and at the time, I had never heard of a pelvic health physiotherapist. So I started seeking out help myself. I want my clients to be able to have access to the right specialists at the right time for them. Some of these specialists I already work with on a regular basis and are included in the Pregnancy & Postpartum Essentials Course.”
