At SSISA, we believe in female empowerment through the delivery of women-centred exercise and fitness! Join us for an insightful talk with Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Dr Kim Sonntag, MBChB, and Dietitian Dr. Natasha Engelbrecht RD(SA), PhD.

Dr Kim Sonntag is a qualified Obstetrician and Gynaecologist with a special interest in high risk pregnancies, teenage women’s health, perimenopause and contraception. She is passionate about educating women regarding their obstetric and gynaecological wellbeing and allowing her patients the space to make collective decisions regarding their health. She is an advocate for vaginal deliveries and cares about forming a long-lasting relationship with her patients.

Dr. Natasha Engelbrecht provides nutrition consultation services on both a one-to-one basis and in group settings, as well as within wellness programs at SSISA. Her expertise covers a wide range of exercise fields, including Crossfit, Hyrox, cycling, running, and triathlons. In addition, she specializes in counselling individuals with conditions such as Diabetes, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia, helping them manage their health through dietary interventions.

Dr Sonntag will be talking about female exercise performance, with a particular focus on the menstrual cycle and hormonal fluctuations, and Dr. Engelbrecht will cover macronutrients such as carbs, fats and proteins for hormonal balance and performance. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
