then introduced Rachel Grubb, the title of whose talk was The
Rise and Fall of the Pelvic floor or Plumbing for
Beginners! Rachel is part of a team, working at Warwick
and Stratford hospitals,who deal with problems in this particular
area of the anatomy mostly with women but, of course, men can
be affected too. Because of the way we are designed a lot of
women`s problems are a result of child bearing. Rachel stressed
how important it is to do pelvic floor exercises to keep those
muscles strong. As well as those exercises she gave the following
Aim to drink between 3 and 4 pints of fluid a day; water is
Reduce tea and coffee intake
Never empty your bladder just in case
Rachel`s talk was very informative accompanied by some simple,
easy to understand drawings , on her laptop presentation. Finally
she had us all trying out the pelvic floor exercises.
