Presenter Profile

Bio from Louise Carroll

I graduated in 2005 from University College Dublin and went on to work in Our Lady's Hospital, Cashel, South Tipperary Hospital in Clonmel and in private practice. I became interested in Women's Health early on and have been working in this area since 2007. I am fascinated by the complex role of the brain in pain and passionate about providing evidence based holistic care to women. I teach pregnancy pilates and mum and baby yoga as well as well as working as a Women's Health physiotherapist in Clonmel Premier Physiotherapy in Tipperary. In recent years I qualified as a Gentlebirth Instructor, baby massage teacher and birth and postpartum doula and this gives a lovely variety to my work. I'm married to Vinny and have three mad children aged 7,8 and 12. During my down time I love horse-riding, yoga and football.
