Event Details

The one day workshop follows on from the webinar “Understanding the post-partum women”, however you are welcome to attend the workshop even if you missed it.

Post-partum women are undergoing a natural physiological process to return to pre-natal physiology. In order to understand common clinical presentations, one must recognise this continuing process and where the client is on this pathway. Breastfeeding may extend the timeframe and has its own unique effect.

The wider community often underestimates the time of expected return to “normal” often leaving women with unrealistic expectations of their body, health, relationships and identity.

The workshop will cover the following key points.

Pregnancy to Post-partum change
Physiology of breastfeeding and postural considerations to manual and natural therapists
Common musculoskeletal presentations – treatment and management
Adapting your current skills to the post-partum patient
Supporting the mother baby relationship
Pelvic floor dysfunction, activation and strengthening
Medical red flags and indicators for referral

I look forward to sharing and learning together in a supportive and caring environment.

Prue is committed to further osteopathic education, completing a Graduate Certificate in Neonatal and Paediatric Manual Therapy at Victoria University in 2012. Prue mentors osteopathic students to prepare for clinical practice and currently provides clinical supervision.

Since 2012, Prue has been the Australian Course Co-ordinator for the Australian Research College of Osteopathic Medicine (ARCOM), who runs training for registered Osteopaths. Additionally she is a faculty and board member of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation of Australia and New Zealand. She is a professional member of Osteopathy Australia and the Australian Breastfeeding Association and maintains national registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.

She has worked in a number of clinics in eastern Melbourne since returning from working in Auckland, New Zealand and now feels at home living in the Yarra Valley and is the director and principle Osteopath at Koru Natural Therapies, in Chirnside Park Victoria.

Prue enjoys spending time with her family including her 2 dogs Falko and Saffy, hiking, scuba diving, travelling and practising her German language skills.
