Added fizz as you check out pelvic health
A Bath specialist physio is turning pelvic health awareness into a fun night out with the promise of prosecco. The Prosecco and Pelvic Floor charity event will focus on motherhood and the injuries that can be sustained in childbirth, with the aim of avoiding problems that can show up later in life. Emma Smith, who works at Bath’s Royal United Hospital, is holding two events. The first is an event to encourage new mums and mums to be to talk and understand the effects that a damaged pelvic floor can have on daily life. The second is a more general women’s pelvic health evening for women of any age. The 37-year-old pelvic pain specialist said: “I am looking forward to holding the workshops and hope to see lots of new mums and mums-to-be come along and learn more about their pelvic floor. “I see people post-operative who say, “if only they had seen me earlier” because they have learned a lot from me and wish they had known about it earlier to save some embarrassing moments. “It’s meant to be fun and a great way to get people’s attention, it’s not serious or negative and there will be quizzes and raffles with great prizes to help fundraise for our therapies building at the RUH and the Therapies Matters Campaign. “Prosecco will be on offer to make it fun and informal as well as cold and hot drinks for those who would prefer. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and empowering people with information.” The first event takes place on Tuesday at Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel at 7pm, and the second Women’s Wellness workshop will take place at 7pm on September 27 at the Sofa.com. Tickets are £10 and need to be booked in advance. To book a place for either evening please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
