My full professional title is Pelvic Obstetric & Gynecological Physiotherapist, but my friends call me The Fanny Physio! I assess and treat all pain and dysfunction of the pelvic region, its muscles and skeleton. We are the first line treatment for symptoms down there, as well as back and pelvic pain, tummy muscle rehabilitation, pregnancy and post-natal fitness.
I specialize in treating women through pregnancy to treat pain and prepare for birth as well as post-partum care to support and heal birth trauma, diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunctions and supporting mums through their post-natal journal.
I have worked as a womens health physiotherapist for more than 10 years and a physiotherapist for more than 15. In 2017 I set up my own physiotherapy and rehabilitation space with my business partner Claire and our husbands in Battersea: Four. Sides London. This has grown to be a space I’m super proud of, a hub in our community and a place where so many women share their post-natal journeys with me.
I am passionate about empowering women to feel healthy and strong through pregnancy, after birth and beyond. My book “Stronger, the honest guide to healing and rebuilding after pregnancy and birth” (Pub date 27th May 2021) is a step by step guide for mothers to feel their strongest and is a text book of all I have learnt and share with mothers on a daily basis. It lays bare all those things we were too afraid to ask or didn’t know to ask! It is the guide which should come with every maternity pack and one that I hope will support you on your unique start to motherhood.
My post-natal mantra “protect, stabilise and rehabilitate” is a theory we must apply to recover from all injuries and no more so than after pregnancy and birth. Too often these essential steps to healing are overlooked and our strength and ability to return to things we enjoy is negatively impacted as a result.
My professional life has been greatly enhanced by motherhood and sharing my journey as a mum with my two girls.
