Pelvic health problems affecting bladder, bowel and sexual health are highly personal and therefore often difficult to talk about. Feeling safe and comfortable when discussing these issues is a key component of our holistic approach to your care. Myself and my team understand pelvic health as part of our physical, social and emotional well-being and quality of life. Our commitment is to use our skills and knowledge to help you achieve your goals.”
