Women’s Health Session – Pelvic Health

The Women’s football squad will run a Pelvic Health session on Wednesday 23rd March, 7-8pm in the clubrooms at Tormore. All women of the Club would be invited (footballers, netballers, volunteers, members and the women in their families).

Poor pelvic health is a barrier for women to participate in sport and while it’s an issue that impacts many women, it’s not often spoken about.

We’ve engaged a Pelvic Health professional to run the session who is currently completing her PhD in poor pelvic health and the impact on women participating in community sport. Her presentation will be supported by Meg McKernan, who is a specialist obstetrics nurse. This was Meg’s initiative and one that will be of interest to many women in our Club community.

We are anticipating that this will be the first in a series of three Women’s Health sessions that will be run by the Women’s squad throughout the season.


Boronia Diamonds are now Recruiting!

“Playing for team motherhood”: Returning to team sport after childbirth

“Motherhood and a decrease in physical activity participation often go hand in hand. Specifically, early motherhood is a time when women have some of their lowest rates of sport participation. This is a problem, because during the postnatal period (up to 1 year after giving birth) women are at high risk of drastic weight gain, postpartum depression, isolation and anxiety. While physical changes that affect sport participation are well-addressed, how postnatal women re-engage in sport is also affected by gendered expectations accompanying motherhood. These expectations include gender roles dictating how mothers “should” behave. Another expectation is intensive mothering, that is, the expectation that mothers must prioritize their child’s needs over their own. These expectations both decrease mothers’ physical activity levels and also weaken their emotional and physical well-being”. Learn more……..
