Wellbeing Event at Schroders with Christien Bird: Menopause and pelvic health
November 12, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
We are delighted to announce our next Wellbeing Event at Global Asset Manager Schroders – Menopause and pelvic health
This talk is for Schroders’ female employees who are welcome to invite their partner or spouse to attend.
In collaboration with the Really Helpful Club, Schroders have invited Christien Bird MSc, MCSP, a Chartered Physiotherapist and the practice owner of the White Hart Clinic, a busy multi-disciplinary clinic in Barnes, South West London to speak to their female employees about maintaining good pelvic health during peri-menopause and the menopause.
Menopause is a life stage and time when the pelvic floor can come into focus. Christien will explain everything that all midlife women need to know about their pelvic floor, how to look after the pelvic floor, what works and what can be left on the shelf and how to get the help you need. She will cover all things bladder, bowel, prolapse and sex. Christien will also talk about why exercise is so important for women in midlife and menopause and how to exercise safely.
