I am honoured to introduce to you Michelle Lyons, an esteemed figured in the world of Women's Health Physiotherapy globally. Michelle's session is entitled - 'Let's Talk About Sex - During and After Pregnancy'. Well, this title really got me excited as apart from Pelvic Dysfunction, this topic is also a big 'shhh' topic so here better to blow the lid than in our intimate gathering :-). Myth and misinformation surround the subject of sex during the natal period so it will be awesome to just have some great information and frank discussion and also an opportunity to have questions answered by an expert in the field. My ears will be properly pinned back for this one.
Michelle Lyons is a chartered physiotherapist who has been practicing integrative women’s healthcare for over 20 years using manual therapy, exercise prescription, bodywork, nutrition, yoga, Pilates, and most of all, listening.
She is a member of the faculty of Herman & Wallace, the Pelvic Rehab Institute, as well as being a tutor for the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women’s Health. She teaches internationally on women’s health and is particularly passionate about pelvic health! This past year has seen her teach in the UK, the US and the Middle East and she looks forward to continuing to spread the message of empowering women to take charge of their health no matter what stage of life they are enjoying.

And there will be ample opportunity to discuss the issues that you or your clients might have been too embarrassed to discuss with their doctor/midwife/health visitor. Key topics will be: How Pregnancy can affect your sex drive and orgasms, how to take care of your changing body in Pregnancy. Also, what to do if sex seems impossible and the important questions to ask your healthcare providers, as well as returning to sex after your baby is born.
