Pregnancy & motherhood: These are the most body challenging times of your life.
Aches, pains, weaknesses, and feeling disconnected from the body you once knew.
Diastasis recti abdominis, pelvic pain, back pain, pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence - the odds are that you’ll experience one or more of them. But there are ways to prevent so much of this, to prepare your body for your ideal delivery, and to repair postpartum effectively and safely.
I’ve been there, and I’ve seen countless women through their struggles with fertility, pregnancy and their postpartum recovery - even decades postpartum! With nearly fifteen years of clinical experience in my evidence-based practice, I am here to help you navigate the often overwhelming path to pain-free, functional living.
Helping you to live your best life, pain-free, strong and reaching your physical goals is my passion.
Providing osteopathy, athletic therapy, workshops and online support.
I am an Ottawa-based osteopathic manual practitioner, athletic therapist and active mumma of three. While I was pregnant with my first, my passion for pre- and post-natal health and wellness bloomed. My goal is to share my knowledge and experience about pregnancy and postpartum injuries with you, so that you too can have a healthy, pain-free pregnancy, your ideal delivery and an efficient recovery postpartum.
