Pelvic Health 101 For Your Tween and Teen Girls
Wednesday, April 15, 2020 – 6:30-8:30pm
A seminar for engaged parents and caregivers of teen or pre-teen girls. Learn the basics about pelvic health for girls (bowel, bladder, periods, sexuality, etc) so you can help them confidently navigate all the changes to come. More importantly, position yourself as an open, trustworthy, and knowledgable advisor when it comes to talking about all the body things without communicating shame or passing on negative cognitions about pelvic health. *This is a talk for parents and caregivers only. If there is enough interest, we may organize an event for teens later in the year.
Paediatric Pelvic Health
Wednesday, May 13, 2020 – 6:30-8:30pm
When children experience daytime leaks, ongoing bedwetting, behaviours around toileting, or chronic constipation, it can leave parents feeling frustrated and helpless. Yet many pee and poo issues children face have a major connection to their overall pelvic health. It’s sometimes easy to forget that little people can have pelvic floor challenges too. They deserve care just as must as you or I – and there is actually a lot that can be done to help them overcome! During this seminar, our paediatric pelvic health physiotherapist will offer some insights into the most common challenges kids and families face, and provide some simple strategies you can try at home. There will also be plenty of time for Q and A.
Approaching (Peri)Menopause with Body Competence and Pelvic Resilience
Wednesday, September 23, 2020 – 6:30-8:30pm
Getting older is inevitable, but experiencing pelvic floor dysfunction is not! If you’re approaching menopause, or even past menopause, it is never too late to discover your inner strength and resilience. During this seminar, we’ll cover all the basics of perimenopausal pelvic health – from hormonal health, to tissue changes, sexual health, pelvic health conditions, pre and post operative considerations, and more. Learn how pelvic health physiotherapy – and other health professions – help you navigate this season of transition armed with knowledge and confidence.
