Gill has been a physiotherapist for over 30 years and has worked specifically in Women’s Health for 23 years in a variety of public and private hospitals and clinics.

Gill continues to work at a busy public maternity hospital where she supports women with musculoskeletal and pelvic floor issues both during and after pregnancy. She is a mentor to younger physiotherapists and physiotherapy students and loves to encourage them in their journey to be outstanding women’s health physiotherapists. She also works privately at Pelvic Strength Physiotherapy Clinic in Croydon and brings the same level of care to women during pregnancy, after birth and beyond.

Babes on Board classes have been running for over 20 years and initially started once a week to meet a need in a small maternity hospital in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. As demand and “word of mouth” have increased, the classes have increased both in size and frequency and now run in 3 locations. Gill is passionate about the classes being a safe and welcoming space so all women can exercise during this special time with professional consideration and appropriate modification offered to any issues presented during pregnancy and through the post partum stage.
