Grow Women’s Health Story

gro.w women’s health in Canberra was created to promote greater awareness and knowledge regarding women’s health and pelvic floor conditions. As women, our bodies undergo many changes which can impact function and lifestyle. Many of these changes, whether they be injuries, pregnancy changes, birth experiences, postnatal recovery, hormonal changes or our physical and mental growth, can be better navigated and managed with the right information and support. Our goal is to enable women to self-manage their recovery and provide them with education to prevent future dysfunction. 

gro.w was started by sisters Juanita and Julia, who are both passionate about the care women receive throughout their lives. They each spent several years working in the public and private sectors, before deciding to create a space that is specifically targeted to help women.

Julia – Senior Physiotherapist

Julia graduated from the Australian National University with a Bachelor of Medical Science before completing her Masters of Physiotherapy at the University of Canberra. Early in her career she developed a passion for pelvic floor physiotherapy and completed a Postgraduate Certificate of Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy through the University of Melbourne. To compliment her unique skill set Julia has also completed the extensive Australian Physiotherapy Pilates Institute training and is a certified clinical Pilates instructor. Julia has a strong passion for providing women with the information and knowledge to prevent or cure many of the common symptoms they can face throughout life.

When Julia isn’t working or studying she is spending time with her family, tracking down the best pastries and coffees Canberra has on offer, trekking up and down the mountains around this beautiful city, or enjoying a wine with friends.

Juanita – Senior Physiotherapist

At the ripe old age of 13, Juanita decided she would be a Physiotherapist. Once school was out of the way, Juanita completed a Bachelor of Human Nutrition and a Masters of Physiotherapy at the University of Canberra. As a new physio recruit who grew up playing sport, Juanita imagined she would aspire to be a Sports Physio, but soon realised her passion lay in pelvic floor physiotherapy.  She went on to complete a Postgraduate Certificate in Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy through the University of Melbourne.  Complimenting this, Juanita has also completed her pilates training through the Australian Physiotherapy Pilates Institute. Through her own experience in sport and her work in pelvic floor physiotherapy, Juanita has a passion for providing women with the information and support needed to manage their physical function and health through anything life throws at them. 

When Juanita isn’t talking about all things pelvic floor or injury management, she’s running on the trails around Canberra, walking her giant fur child or chasing her two small human ones.
