I was talking to a friend (who will be coming to see you!) today about how you worked your magic with me Helen. I know I haven’t needed to come back and see you, but I never really got to thank you for helping me to heal and get better. I know I always told you that you have worked wonders but seriously you helped me beyond anything I ever expected.

Before coming to see you I was more distraught than anything and felt like I was never going to get better. I was fortunate enough to have found you and will always tell others with similar health problems how fantastic you are. If I ever embark on baby number four I know where I will be coming before and after birth. You do an amazing job Helen, more than helping to repair women physically you help them to better their overall well being. So please carry on doing what you’re doing.

Having represented GB in marathon running prior to the birth of my first baby, I was keen to return to full training immediately afterwards and have been so grateful for the level of commitment and attention to detail that Christien and Helen from the Women’s Health Team at the White Hart Clinic have been able to provide. They have enabled me to return to running personal best times and worked with the rest of my team of sports medicine practitioners to ensure that I am in the best possible position to fulfil my ambitions of an Olympic marathon spot in running whilst not compromising my pelvic floor health. I highly recommend all post natal sportswomen, even with straightforward birth experiences like mine, to follow Christien and Helen’s advice and expertise in returning to sport at any level – they are truly outstanding.
