Elaine Miller

What's the talk about?

Elaine joined us on the last night of the Fringe and we're delighted to have her back with evidence-based comedy.

You’ve vaguely heard of a pelvic floor and think it’s something to do with pregnant women and leaky old ladies.

Elaine Miller is a physiotherapist, comedian and recovered incontinent. She wants to bust the taboo and introduce you to the wonders of the your pelvic floor (yep, guys, you’ve got one too) and the science of continence. She’ll share with you that being incontinent is more common than having the cold and that most cases of simple stress incontinence are curable. Using anatomical models, evidence based practice and a sense of humour she’ll teach you what your pelvic floor is, what it does, and why having a good one is smashing. Chuck in a bit of statistics, politics, economics and psychology and you’ll leave motivated to #doyerblardyexercises.
