Healthy Hips Australia shedding light on Hip Dysplasia

Aug 08, 2019, 01:16 AM
Our guest today is Sarah, an occupational therapist and Mum who has both experienced hip dysplasia with her children and become a national advocate by creating an organisation about this condition called Healthy Hips Australia.
Today we talk about the impact of hip dysplasia and how to look for it in babies. We also discuss the safe positioning of babies. Sarah completed a business administration degree in conjunction with her occupational therapy
degree in 2006 and now works in a voluntary capacity as the CEO and Chairperson of Healthy Hips Australia. Sarah worked across numerous acute, inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient rehabilitation settings in the West Australian Department of Health. Sarah sat on the committee of management for the WA Occupational Therapy Association in a marketing role for three years. A mother of two children with hip dysplasia, Sarah was inspired to use her professional skills to establish and run Healthy Hips Australia.
