March is Endometriosis Awareness month – a debilitating condition that affects over 1.5 million women in the UK alone. I thought it would be a useful time to provide an update on my ongoing journey with women’s health.
My passion for women’s health has taken me to complete an Advanced Pregnancy Practitioner certification by Jenny Burrell of Burrell Education. Jenny is one of the UK’s leading educators in the field of modern pregnancy and post baby, the 3rd Age (Peri-to Post-Menopause) as well as female fitness, wellness, massage and also bodywork therapies. It has been a really enjoyable and interesting learning experience.
I look forward to go onto to the next phase in my pursuit of women’s health by attending a Mummy MOT course in London next month, which will be led by Maria Elliott, founder of Simply Pelvic Health, Simply Women’s Health and The Mummy MOT London. Maria has worked extensively in the field of Women’s Health for over 30 years and is one of the UK’s leading practitioners in women’s and men’s pelvic health.
The course is designed for working with new mums and their postnatal health and will help me to create pelvic restorative programmes, assess pelvic floor function and provide a progressive recovery plan, develop practical solutions for diastatis recovery, and help mums return happily to a pain-free sex life.
I can’t wait to undertake this next phase of my learning, so that I can continue to improve my work with women patients at the Good Health Centre.
