My guest in Conversation is Peta Gillian from Strong Healthy Women.  In this episode we discuss the importance of a Strong Core and building Pelvic Floor Strength.
1 in 3 Australian women have pelvic floor issues. Many women who experience pelvic floor issues such as prolapse, incontinence, are afraid to exercise.
During menopause with the fall in oestrogen that connective tissue becomes 50% and loses elasticity. 

During the conversation we discussed:

1. What is the core and why we need to keep it strong especially after 50
2. Pelvic Floor – the exercises to avoid and exercises to strengthen
3. The warning signs of weak core muscles
4. How our lifestyles are killing our core strength and posture
4. Staying Strong and healthy after 50

    My poor mother-in-law is having a terrible time with urinary incontinence and that has renewed my interest in wanting to strengthen my pelvic floor. Thank you for this information and the link to the 5 day program.
