I had a great inspiring conversation with experienced fitness professional Jo Cordell-Cooper from Hobart today, and we have been able to share a link to one of her stories.

There are so many aspects that affect women's bodies during and after pregnancy, many of which impact the choices of exercise and the rate at which women can get back to fitness post birth. The issue of pelvic joint pain is one aspect.

Working together with her physio colleagues Jo shared success stories of women she has trained, so it's great to have been spurred with more ideas for the theme of this newsletter "Bringing together Fitness and Physiotherapy".
