understand your pelvic health
All too often women’s health can be overlooked. whether you’re pregnant, just had a baby, going through pre menopause, already in menopause or experiencing pain with sex, we still have a lot to learn about what our bodies and pelvic floor go through.
Due to this lack of education, we can become disconnected with that part of our body and how to keep it healthy.

how physiotherapy can help
I’m a Physiotherapist passionate about bringing awareness to pelvic health and women’s health.
Through Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy, my goal is to provide you with the care you need to address your pelvic health concerns while also promoting education about this little known but crucial part of our bodies.
pre/post-natal exercise program
My pre/post-natal exercise program was created to help women stay active during pregnancy and beyond. In my own clinical practice, I noticed that many women were interested in remaining active during their pregnancy or afterwards, but didn’t know where to start.
By developing an exercise program specifically for pregnancy and postpartum, I can help you approach exercise as a way to remain healthy, strong, and become more aware of your body as it goes through the wonderful changes of pregnancy.
Through one on one coaching, nutrition education, weekly check-ins, and a customized exercise plan, I will help you work out safely during your pregnancy and ease back into exercise post-partum.
