Crossing your legs each time you sneeze or cough? 

You guessed it... women's health physio CAROLYN SULTANA is back in June and we're talking INCONTINENCE. 

We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but postnatal urinary incontinence is quite common, with the condition being more prevalent in women who give birth vaginally. We tend to ignore it, laugh it off, and hope this embarassing issue just 'goes away'... and while sometimes things do resolve on their own, too many women live with the symptoms for many years - limiting exercise, controlling laughter and not being able to live life to the fullest.

During the second FREE live webinar in the POSTNATAL RECOVERY ESSENTIALS series, we will focus on the causes, management and treatment of postnatal incontinence. We're talking about:

  • What leads to postnatal urinary or bowel incontinence
  • What lifestyle changes help manage incontinence
  • The specific exercises that are aimed at resolving symptoms
  • Aids and medications that treat incontinence
  • Q&A time with our expert

Knowing the symptoms of common illnesses, how to deal with them & when you should seek medical advice is essential for any parent!

No parent rests easy when their baby is sick – the first time your baby gets a cold, upset stomach or fever, it's normal to worry. Certain illnesses, however, are so common during the first year that they're almost routine, and your little one is very likely to experience fever or other common conditions.

In his role as a paediatrician and a dad, Dr Samuel has experienced your frustrations and worries, and will be delivering this webinar series to help you understand what to typically expect and how to navigate all of the developments during your little one's first year.

The SECOND WEBINAR in this series will familiarize you with fever and common illnesses such as colds, gastroenteritis and more. During this live webinar you will have the opportunity to ask your questions to Dr Samuel during Q&A time!

PELVIC FLOOR & CORE HEALTH is a topic many mamas only hear about only when issues start cropping up!

 

Pregnancy and birth (both vaginal and caesarean) can put stress on and damage the pelvic floor and our core muscles. So, if you are planning to have a baby, you’re pregnant or you’ve had a baby (or a few), now is an especially important time to pay attention to those muscles down south!

SUN SAFETY is on every parent's mind once the temperatures start soaring!

We read confusing and often conflicting advice about how we should be keeping our little ones safe in the sun... What are the harmful effects of high UV? What should we look for in a sunscreen? Is sunscreen enough to protect from the sun? How often should we apply sunscreen? What SPF to use? What swimwear and clothing should we aim for? Should we use sunscreens on infants? What do we do in case of sunburn?

We have teamed up with the lovely people at My Favourite Things and the sun protection range by Linea MammaBaby to bring you this FREE webinar.

Dermatologist Dr. Liam Mercieca will be talking about how we can keep our kids safe from the harmful effects of the sun, and having an informal Q&A with participants to answer any questions that you might have.

So much conflicting advice, countless versions of checklists... where to start?

COLIC - it seems to come on suddenly, out of nowhere and with no end in sight.

You don’t understand why your little one is so stressed, tense, and uncomfortable and you don’t know how you can help them! We KNOW just how hard it is to go from being so excited about your baby to feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and at a loss as to how to help them feel better.

We are excited to announce our upcoming FREE LIVE WEBINAR 'What every parent needs to know about COLIC', sponsored by Dr. Brown's, the leading brand of baby bottles in the UK that is recommended by professionals to help ease colicky symptoms and gas.

There will be time for a Q&A - have your questions ready so that Catriona will be able to give you her tips!
