LINCOLN PARK, CHICAGO
If you've endured a pelvic health condition or a pregnancy, if you have lady-bits questions that make you blush, or if you're just looking for some new girlfriends, this is the event for you! This evening will feature a fun, collaborative environment where you'll be surrounded by like-experienced women. Ask your lingering pelvic health questions of women's health practitioners, hear inspirational stories of recovery, practice some fun and guided yoga, and enjoy delicious catered hors d'oeuvres and treats.
Consider it a celebration of your pelvic health and some much-needed "me time" as you begin a new year.

As her symptoms relented, she became even more intrigued by the healing power of food, and she pursued her Culinary Nutrition Expert certification. As a health coach and healthy chef, Monqiue offers her clients a dynamic and life-changing combination of lifestyle changes, fabulous food, and empathy, having traveled the road to recovery herself once before.
