What’s up down There? The Intelligent Gal’s Guide to Her Pelvic Floor

  • Ampersand 3317 West Fullerton Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

To Kegel or not to Kegel? That’s just one question many women have about their pelvic floors, along with: How do I know if I’m kegeling correctly? Should I steam the thing? Does it need maintenance like my car? What did my kid DO to it during delivery? What if I had a c-section, or never had kids? Statistics indicate that more than 1/3 of U.S. women have a Pelvic Floor Disorder, with nearly ¼ experiencing multiple issues that cause symptoms, yet ObGyn’s are not trained to assess pelvic floor musculature, and incontinence issues and prolapse surgeries are on the rise.

How’s a girl to know what’s up down there?

In this engaging 1-hour workshop you’ll learn the basics of your pelvic floor anatomy, what it does for you, the signs of dysfunction, along with a better understanding of how to keep it in good working order throughout your lifetime. Register in advance by purchasing tickets here on EventBrite. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat if you’d like to participate in a few optional exercises.

Cost: $30 per person
