Fitwise Community | A Celebration Day for Girls

A Celebration Day For Girls

Menarche (a girl’s first period) is a defining moment in the transition from young girlhood and A Celebration Day For Girls honours this unique aspect of becoming a young woman. A workshop for 10-12 year olds and their Mums (or female carers), the day includes detailed information and fun activities around puberty and periods, lively discussion, the sharing of stories and beautiful ritual.

We want our girls to cherish their bodies, feel positive about who they are and build resilience for the many challenges the world will throw at them.

One of our senior physiotherapists Kath facilitates this Sunday workshop for private and
school/church groups.

Maternal Child Health Talks

Fitwise Physiotherapy loves to prevent injuries and complications from occurring, rather than waiting until they do happen! This is why we love doing our Maternal Child Health talks at several centres around Melbourne. The opportunity to talk to new mothers about how best to look after their bodies in the post natal period is invaluable. We discuss how best to look after backs, tummy and pelvic floor muscles, common complaints and how best to avoid them. The physiotherapists also provide a take-home information pack.

If your Maternal Child Health Centre is interested in participating, please contact us on 9486 0512 (East Melbourne Rooms) or 9822 4999 (Armadale Rooms).

The aim is supported by the following objectives:

  • strengthen the relationship between the continence and fitness industry
  • increase awareness of the link between certain types of exercise and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, and
    promote pelvic floor safe exercises.
