Her extensive work in the assessment and management of incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, bowel disorders, sexual dysfunction, pelvic pain and antenatal and postnatal care has enabled Better Health to take their treatment of women’s health issues to a whole new level.

During this time, she completed further postgraduate studies, was deeply involved in lecturing and clinical research on the pelvic floor at King’s, and subsequently published several articles for international journals. Additionally, she was invited to become the reviews editor for the Journal for Pelvic, Obstetric and Gynecology Physiotherapy which reviewed new and upcoming books, apps and devices.

Ever active in the field, she has published a chapter called Pelvic Floor in the Childbearing Year for a midwifery textbook.
