Mary O’Dwyer is a pelvic floor physiotherapist, trained at the Universities of Queensland and Melbourne.
Everyday in her clinical work Mary hears women’s stories of pelvic floor failure and pain. Through education and physical retraining these women develop life changing self awareness, a feeling of empowerment to control pelvic floor problems and gain a renewed enjoyment of life.
"We work on the rest of our bodies, why not our pelvic floor? We all need help on how to work it." - Susie O'Neill, Olympic and Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist.
"Today, women's worst habit contributing to pelvic floor problems is constantly drawing back the waist to flatten their stomach. Researchers show that narrowing the abdomen at the waist, increases pressure inside the abdomen which in turn puts pressure down on the pelvic floor." - Mary O'Dwyer, Physiotherapist and Pelvic Floor Coach.
