Mel Fethers is back

Hello Everyone,

It’s Melissa Fethers (physiotherapist) here just to let you know I’m back at Mercy Physiotherapy after a few years on hiatus busy raising my three young boys. I was previously at Mercy Physiotherapy for many years working in Women’s Health both in the clinic and up on the Maternity Ward in the Hospital.

I’m very excited to be back to run the Antenatal Aqua Classes on Tuesday nights at 5pm and 6pm. It’s such a great way to exercise while pregnant, and we have a really fun time.

I’m also returning to running the Preparation for Childbirth classes that are on once a month on a Saturday morning from 8.30 to 11.30. These classes focus on physical skills to empower a woman and her partner to effectively manage pain and facilitate the labour process, using her body to its best advantage both in pregnancy and throughout childbirth. You don’t need to be having your baby at St John of God Mount Lawley to attend these classes, everyone is welcome. I love teaching these classes and assisting women and their partners through this exciting time in their lives. From the feedback I have received over the years, the skills taught have had a really positive effect or many women throughout their labour.

For any more information on any of the above classes, please call us on 9271 9422. I look forward to seeing you soon at Mercy Physiotherapy.

The next scheduled Saturday Prep for Child birth classes are:

20th June
