City of Sanctuary Women for Women stream, have started their Health group which will run once a fortnight on a Wednesday, from 10:30am til 12:30pm.
Venue: Third Age Centre, 11 Cranbury Terrace, SO14 0LH
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org, 02380 711 700
The main purpose of this group is to form a trusting, informal atmosphere where women of all background, culture, age and race can come together and discuss a range of women's health topic. At every session we are helped by women with expert knowledge, but we would like to stress that this is not a drop-in clinic but rather more of a self help group in which women can share knowledge and learn from each other.
The session is made up of two parts; firstly, an informal discussion on the chosen topic is presented, followed by a short 15 minute tea break then we reassemble and dive straight into a Question & Answer discussion (throughout the session women are encouraged to jot down any questions they may have, whether it's related or unrelated to the topic of that day)
On our launch session on April 13, the topic was on the general stages women go though, including menstrual cycle, pregnancy, menopause, old age, etc. there was even a pelvic model.
Some of the topics the women said they'll like to be discussed included: menopause - how to deal with it?, cancers, incontinence, body image/body shaming, domestic violence, sexual health, mental health, etc.
Women, you are all welcome! See you there.
