Added fizz as you check out pelvic health

Bath Chronicle - - NEWS -

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 pro­pelvicfloor@gmail.com.
