I'm Meg; the Mama to Akira and the face behind Hey Mama Physio.
More on me and what Hey Mama is all about if you read on.
I've always had a keen thirst for knowledge and been a nerd for scientific evidence. Life and clinical experience have lead me to having a passion for integrating that information into choices and lifestyle in simple and realistic ways, not only for the Mamas that I work with as a Physio, but also for decisions I made during my own pregnancy and postpartum, and now in motherhood.
I've got a big love for helping women approach pregnancy and postpartum holistically and openly, encouraging conversations about all things including mental health, family dynamics, and pelvic floor issues including incontinence, pain and return to sex. I'm currently working through my own pelvic floor issues following Akira's birth which have slowed my return to yoga, strength training and netball, so I get the frustrations and fears that can accompany returning to movement postpartum.
I don't need to tell you that this is a time of immense change and a huge catalyst for growth and personal development in all domains of the human experience. I'm here for you every step of the way, Mama.
I have worked as a Physiotherapist since completing my studies in 2016, with my formal qualifications being a Masters Degree in Physiotherapy Practice and a Bachelor's Degree in Health Science. I'm also a 200 hour qualified Yoga Teacher.
It was during my pregnancy, that I created and birthed this business. Through movement, education and the encouragement of self-reflection, Hey Mama has a fundamental goal of aiding all Mamas to feel STRONG, INFORMED & EMPOWERED throughout their entire journey to motherhood and beyond.
