Baby on Board: Facing the Aches, Pains & Strains of Pregnancy
Facing the Aches and Pains of Pregnancy?
You’re not alone – almost 3/4 of pregnant women will face hip or back pain at some point.
With the bump comes excess weight and pressure on your joints and ligaments and as your pregnancy progresses, these aches and pains become more prominent, if you don’t manage them.
There are multiple ways to relieve pain, but how do you know which one is the best solution? Sometimes an ache is nothing more than a gentle reminder to take it easy, and at other times it might be a sign you need medical attention.
Join us at this educational event, as we share the causes, preventive measures and treatment of the aches and pains during pregnancy, as well as post-delivery pelvic floor dysfunction.
Saturday, 21 Nov 2015
Admission is $10/pax.
