Have Fibroids affected your quality of life? Are you wondering about a holistic approach to managing your condition? Do you need more support in dealing with the impact of Fibroids?
Fibroids are benign tumours of the uterus (womb)*. They can range in size from seedlings, which are undetectable by the human eye to bulky masses that can distort and enlarge the uterus. They can be single or multiple. In extreme cases they can expand the uterus so much that it reaches the rib cage.** Some of the problems associated with fibroids are bloating, discomfort and heavy menstrual bleeding.
On Sunday 25th November 2018, Noire Wellness warmly welcomes women and families to join their second annual ‘Fibroids Series’ wellness hub. After the first Fibroid Series which took place in 2017, it became evident that there is a greater need to support women battling this condition.
Lake Health and Wellbeing have reported that Fibroids is more common in black women with an estimated 55-80% of black women affected. Currently, there are no health and wellness events that solely focus on fibroids. Part of their community wellness hub offer means that Noire Wellness seek to create transformative wellness spaces for women living with the condition.
Women are invited to experience a day of captivating sessions led by a carefully selected tribe of wellness professionals who are ready to present informative and engaging physical activities, workshops and live demonstrations to help women manage their condition and reduce the effects of fibroids.
Noire Wellness continues to join the many health advocates campaigning for wider recognition of the problems caused by fibroids.
There are a limited number of spaces, with popular workshops selling out fast! Don’t delay! Purchase your Early Bird Tickets here.
This event is supported by Ndulge. If you are interested in supporting or sponsoring future wellness hubs please email firstname.lastname@example.org
