Women's wellness will be the focus of IWC Bundaberg event Yeah, the Girlz when it takes place next week, with space for up to 50 local women to take part in discussions on mindfulness, intuitive eating and more.
Yeah, The Girlz is a free event about taking a day to focus on wellness, engage with health practitioners to discover the services available in the region and learn about the holistic model of care IWC delivers.
Wayne Mulvany, IWC Chief Executive Officer said the Yeah, the Girlz event would provide plenty of insight to those involved.
“Many women in the community have raised concerns with us about the lack of available services in Bundaberg specific to women’s health,” he said.
“As an inclusive, community-run, and charitable organisation, IWC has and will always look for ways to advocate for and support the people in our communities.
“Hosting a women’s wellness day to bring about a greater level of attention and focus to the topic, while providing further support and education, is an initiative that strongly aligns with our ethos and is one that we’re passionate about.”
Yeah the Girlz focuses on health and wellbeing
Starting at 10 am on Wednesday 26 October, guests who have registered to attend via Eventbrite will arrive at Building 2 of the IWC Health and Wellbeing Centre.
Here they will be checked in and receive their goody bag full of samples, information, and products to take care of their overall wellness.
The day will then kick off with a presentation on contraception options from Dr. Alicia Kohn, who has recently started offering Mirena insertion as a service for patients of the IWC Medical Centre.
Other presentations on the day will include a discussion on pelvic floor health and management with Women’s Health Physiotherapist Danielle Wieland; an intuitive eating presentation from Gina Horn, accredited practising dietitian and a mindfulness and journaling session with Skye Wilson, provisional psychologist.
Between sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to mingle and meet with health professionals from the IWC organisation.
Guests will also enjoy a complimentary lunch and drinks, as well as access to 15-minute sessions in the massage chairs at the IWC Gym.
The day will wrap up at 2 pm, though guests will be leaving with a pass to come back and try out the steam rooms as well.
