Women's Health Specialist
ON LEAVE UNTIL OCTOBER
Victoria has been working at Southcote since 2018, starting out in our studio as a Yoga Instructor/Therapist and then joining the clinic as an Osteopath in 2021. She has now set her focus solely on Women's Health and her Mummy MOT assessments - a service offering specialist postnatal examination for women following both vaginal and C-section deliveries.
Victoria’s approach to patient care comes from a background in movement therapy, Yoga therapy, Massage and a keen interest in the Biopsychosocial approach to healthcare. Victoria uses a myriad of treatment approaches, each personally designed with the patients’ needs in mind.
In her spare time, Victoria really enjoys adventuring with her partner in their Camper Van which they are currently renovating from scratch to include a bathroom and kitchen. She’d love to talk to you about this – feel free to ask her in clinic.
About Mummy MOT
A Mummy MOT is a specialist postnatal examination for women following both vaginal and C-section deliveries. It will assess how your posture, pelvic floor muscles and stomach muscles are recovering after childbirth. Victoria will provide you with gentle exercises and treatment to help with your recovery – and get you back on track with your fitness goals. Mums need to bend, squat and lift so we provide clinical postnatal care and functional exercises for female clients following birth (no matter how long ago).
