A little bit about me...
My name is Laura Callea and I am a pelvic floor physiotherapist.
My passion is to help pregnant and post-natal women enjoy the journey of motherhood by keeping them physically active, educated and empowered.
Far too many times I have seen women struggle through pregnancy with aches and pains, incontinence and fatigue. It breaks my heart that women still don't know that they can do something to alleviate these symptoms. My goal is to educate women and teach them how to stay active so that they can have a more enjoyable pregnancy, smooth labour and better post-natal recovery.
Now who doesn't want that right?
In the world we live in today, there is so much information about what we should and shouldn’t be doing during pregnancy. Unfortunately a lot of this information comes from personal opinions and experiences, rather than scientific evidence. My professional qualifications as a physiotherapist allow me to provide expert advice based on good quality evidence to ensure that women are properly educated about their bodies and exercise safely during their pregnancy. Not only do I want women to feel great during their pregnancies, I want them to stay injury-free and protect their tummies and pelvic floor from harm.
I created Physio Laura because I was hearing far too often from my clients "Gee I wish I had known about this earlier" or "I wish I had access to this information during my pregnancy... it would have saved me a lot of trouble after birth!". I want to spread the word about pelvic floor health and safe and effective exercise during pregnancy. I want women to understand their bodies and be empowered to make informed decisions. I want women to enjoy this wonderful journey of motherhood without suffering from preventable problems.
My vision is...
- To enable women to feel great during their childbearing years.
- To empower women to improve their health and wellbeing during pregnancy and beyond.
- To provide safe and clinically effective exercises and advice.
- To educate women about their own bodies and what they can do to improve their health and reduce injury.
