Women’s Health Fair Portishead 2020

WELCOME to our first annual Women’s Health Fair in Portishead on International Women’s Day 8th March 2020 at Portishead Youth Centre and Portishead Primary School. Severn Physiotherapy and Portishead Parent have a vision to raise awareness of women’s health in our local area. We are providing an event to bring together women’s health professionals from the NHS and private sector, to help empower girls and women to ask questions about their healthcare and know where to go for information, advice and treatment. Many symptoms women experience such as incontinence after having a baby, or pain during sex are not mentioned to GPs or sometimes the right referrals are not made. This event is for professionals and the local community to learn together from leaders in the fields of medicine, physiotherapy, nutrition and exercise. Come along and learn something with us on International Women’s Day in the lovely Portishead!

The day will be from 10am to 4pm and have a series of talks from professional speakers on topics in women’s health such as exercising when pregnant or after having a baby, or what smear tests are all about, how to manage periods or menopause among other important issues. Q&A time scheduled in. You can book for free here!

As well as the talks there will be a series of workshops you can attend at Portishead Primary School. These will include exercises, meditation, medical advice, and even business advice!

There will also be taster exercise classes being held to try. Specialist, carefully selected professional instructors have volunteered to teach appropriate exercise for you at different stages of life such as ante natal, post natal, later life, and with a variety of conditions such as osteoporosis. You can book for free here!

We have stalls available to browse and get some freebies and 1 to 1 advice from professionals. These stalls have been selected for their relevance, quality and value they can add to the day for you and your family.
