“A bladder prolapse at 60 heavily impacted on my life and affected me in every way. I signed up for Tracey’s pelvic floor classes. The first thing she explained was where the pelvic floor should be…shock, horror…really all the way up there? It was a real education. Unfortunately my prolapse was stage 3 so I opted for the operation two years ago but thanks to Tracey I was well prepared for it following the classes, which helped with my recovery. Life is back to where it should be and I can get out and about again. I continue to do pelvic floor exercises every day.”
