Fit For Birth Antenatal Classes are run by Amanda Sullivan (MCSP, BSc Hons), a Chartered Physiotherapist and a full member of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women’s Health. Amanda has been specialising in Women’s Health (pregnancy and continence care) since 1999 and works in both the NHS and private sector. Amanda has worked part time since the birth of her two children who are now fourteen and eleven years old.


As a Specialist Physiotherapist in pregnancy, Amanda not only has extensive knowledge of the changes that occur during both pregnancy and the postnatal period but also the professional expertise and skills of how to reduce the physical and emotional stresses of pregnancy and labour. She has a vast experience of treating patients with pelvic pain in pregnancy and has taught antenatal classes for 20 years. She established Fit For Birth antenatal classes in 2008 to meet the needs of the increasing number of women seeking more information on the practical aspects of pregnancy and labour and to enable couples the opportunity to attend together, at a convenient time for working families.


Amanda has undertaken a two year postgraduate course in continence care, earning her postgraduate certificate in 2007. Since this time she has built up a wealth of experience in treating both female and male patients with incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic floor weakness (during pregnancy and after childbirth) and post prostatectomy urinary incontinence.

Private Practice

Amanda offers a physiotherapy service treating pregnancy, postnatal, bowel, continence, gynaecological and prostate related conditions at The Old Rectory Clinic in Iron Acton, Bristol. For more details on conditions treated please see the physiotherapy section.
