Some great feedback from our 2017 Pelvic Floor Talk:
"I'm pregnant with my second baby and found the evening to be extremely informative in terms of what I can do to strengthen my pelvic floor during pregnancy and what exercises I should look to continue post-partum, as well as key information about the bladder. Claire and Paulette were brilliant at explaining anatomy, what we can expect at certain points in our lives and why we don't need to just put up with being uncomfortable. Everyone should go to a session - I can already think of a few friends who would benefit. The food was delicious too, especially the homemade protein balls and smoothies."
