Having a baby is exciting, fascinating, and nerve wracking. If you have never been through the process before, chances are you have a lot of questions and concerns about what changes your body will go through during your pregnancy, what the birthing process entails, and how your recovery will go once you’ve had your baby.
Join us and childbirth specialist, Ashley Brichter, in our final Pelvic Health class of the year to discuss the ins and outs of having a child.
On March 16, 2017 at 7pm we will be kicking off our spring semester of pelvic health education class, we call Pelvic Health 101 (PH101). In our first class we will be introducing you to the pelvic floor muscles, where they are, what they do, and how they relate to the health and function of your bowel, bladder, and sexual functioning. We will also be covering how things such as alignment, posture, muscle tone and nerves can affect your symptoms. This course is a great starting point to help you understand your pelvic floor and pelvic floor symptoms.
We love finding pelvic health educational events all across the country and the world, so we’re excited to share the upcoming “South of Your Border: Straight Answers About Pelvic Health” event happening at the Banner Health Center in Surprise, Arizona (13995 W. Statler Blvd.) on February 12. The event is free, and will take place from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. Advance registration is required, which you can do via phone at (602) 230-CARE (2273) or online.
At this event, Dr. Leszek Grabowski, will discuss female pelvic health, with the range of topics including incontinence, fibroids, menopause, and much more. Dr. Grabowski specializes in obstetrics and gynecology, specifically the screening and treatment of gynecologic conditions. In addition to this discussion, there will also be a Q&A, chances to win door prizes, refreshments, and a gift for all those in attendance.
