Raising the awareness of continence

Bladder and bowel problems affect 1 in 3 women at any age of their lives causing incontinence, leakage of urine, wind or stool. In many cases this can be reversed if addressed immediately, however many women are embarrassed to talk about it or seek for help on time.

Research to date is emphasizing the importance of conservative treatment and its effectiveness in preventing and treating bladder and bowel symptoms.

The aim of this workshop therefore is to make all women aware of:

  • Types of incontinence:
    • Stress urinary incontinence
    • Urge Urinary incontinence
    • Mixed incontinence
    • Bowel incontinence
  • Causes of Incontinence
  • Treatment options with the latest scientific evidence discussed
  • Recovery following the childbirth
  • Advice on modifying sporting activities
  • Advice on eating and drinking
  • Pelvic Floor Exercises (Kegel’s exercises) 
During this workshops participant will get information on how to seek further help if they’re experiencing any of the symptoms, but also how to prevent it in the first place. Bladder diary and handouts on all of the treatment options will be provided and everyone will have an opportunity to interactively participate in this workshop.

This is an ideal workshop run at lunchtime at workplace, clients home (new mum’s are encouraged to bring babies) and clinics.

Duration: 1.5 hours
