Specialising in the area of women’s health since 2011, Natasha is thorough in her patient care approaching every consultation with empathy and understanding. Natasha is an experienced physiotherapist in all areas of women’s health physiotherapy including supporting women with incontinence, bladder and bowel dysfunction, prolapse, pelvic pain, pain with intercourse, pregnancy and the post-partum period, pessary fitting and management.
