On my way home from a recent holiday to Cairns I was sitting on the plane feeling the engine kick into an extra gear as we took off, I saw the moon glistening on the ocean and the wind of the plane I realised how much I love flying! Don’t get me wrong I hate the queues and waiting for delayed flights but I love the feeling of flying, soaring above the earth and being free. It made me think of my brother who is a pilot and he loves being a pilot. I’m not surprised given he gets to feel like this everyday. Which got me thinking about how important it is that we love what we do! And I really do love what I do. That’s why I created Perfect Pelvic Floor. I loved engaging with women in my clinic who were proactive about their bodies during pregnancy and wanted to soak up all the information they could get. So I thought why not go bigger and allow women all over the world access to information to help themselves and prevent incontinence! As a Physiotherapist that’s what I’m all about.

Can I exercise during my pregnancy?
This is the biggest question I get asked! My answer: Of course you can! Being pregnant and going through labour is a bit like running a marathon, and you would never just do a marathon without preparing, exercising, and having some idea of what you’re getting into. A client of mine was seeing her OBGYN in the later stages of her pregnancy and was asked if she had any other medical issues and she replied with “asthma, but only when exercising.” Her OBGYN looked at her dumbfounded and said “well what do you think you’re about to do? have your inhaler with you during labour!”
