Midland Women’s Health Care Place invites women to pamper session

MIDLAND Women’s Health Care Place invites women of all ages to challenge what is normal and enjoy a little pampering next month.

The free event on Wednesday September 7 is part of national Women’s Health Week.

Bookings are essential for the informal morning of talks and health care run in conjunction with Jean Hailes for Women’s Health and the Cancer Council of WA.

The Midland centre’s promotion officer Suzanne Thomas said that at different stages in life, women wondered if they were ‘normal’.

She said that by lunchtime, the answer would become clearer.

“We really want to reach out to isolated women, people that have not heard of us before and don’t know what we do,” she said.

Other presentations will include a healthy food demo with a focus on gluten, physical health and wellbeing through Tai Chi, along with the pampering session.

The first 50 women to arrive will receive a gift.

Ms Thomas said the centre had helped women with a low-cost counselling service for more than 21 years and grown to become the go-to place for help on any aspect of life.

The centre has a creche and specialist female nurse practitioners provide a free, pap clinic each week.

No referrals from doctors are required for any counselling or health services, but bookings are required.

Women can drop in from Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm, to have a cuppa and browse information about women’s health services.

Workshops about every aspect of a women’s life run regularly, with short courses on living without anxiety or depression and a program on peri-natal mental health.

Women must live in the Eastern Metropolitan area of Perth to be eligible to access services at the centre in The Avenue.

To make a booking, call 9250 2221.
