Women’s Health

Women's health

Every day is a challenge, with the challenge to be better than the day before, for our loved ones, our business and ourselves.  Women’s health changes dramatically, it can be like a roller coaster ride sometimes with menstruation, pregnancy, anxiety, keeping up our vitamins, water intake and the list goes on.

There is nothing more important than putting your health first, because if we don’t how are we going to look after the family and the business.  I’m sure you may have experienced it before when you have been sick and then you have a big backlog of things to catch up on and wish you had a live-in nanny.

Here we invite members to publish their health tips and expertise to help the women of our community.

Gynaecological/Vulval Awareness

“Vagina”, “the clit”, “muff”, “minge”, “pussy”, “fanny”, “the snatch” are very commonly used words and slang words when talking about “the lady-private part” professionally known as “the vulva”, but not for Kath, it’s her goal to create Gynaecological/Vulval awareness.

At 42 years of age, Kath had her Clitoris, Vulva and groin lymph glands removed due to Vulva cancer, Kath had a  surgery that many wouldn’t have heard of “A Radical Vulvectomy”.

After her treatment, one of her three children was found to have Polycystic ovaries and Endometriosis, then finding out that over 2 million Australian women had this condition. Plus let’s not forget to mention the other conditions such as prolapse, Fibroid, GYN cancers, Hysterectomy and menopause, the list goes on.

GYN

Realising this was when Kath started to speak out more and make more use of the word “Vulva”, at one point she felt isolated and ostracised by even women back then for even mentioning the word “Vulva” and most referred to it as the “Vagina” to now winning honour awards and being associated with a number of groups.

Kath is a public speaker for those afraid to speak out and recommends the services of Jean Hailes Women’s Health and Cancer Centres as they have evidence-based resources, Cancer Support and Sexual Health Headquarters. 

Her favourite quote “Knowledge is power.  Viva La Vulva, Don’t wait till it is too late”.

Kath wants to encourage women when planning their strategic plan for 2022 to include:

  • The international Gynaecological awareness on September 10th, and,
  • To collaborate with medical professionals, women’s groups and the community at large.

Dental on Demand

Dental on demandI wanted to fill in the gap for patients who don’t have access to quality dentistry, this may be because they live in a remote area, struggle with mobility or have fears.  After thinking about the concept for many years I decided to throw myself into my own business, I spoke to a number of professionals that help with start-up businesses and next minute I was launching.

My mobile business started to provide better access to dental care from the comfort of patients’ homes, aged care facilities, child care centres and even corporate offices.  

I love being able to provide a portable service to those at aged care facilities where residents have restricted movement, they can stay in their bed or their favourite chair, encouraging and educating healthy dental care habits to the carers and the children at child care centres, or allowing parents to be able to cook dinner while all the family members in the household get a dental check-up and hygiene visit. Some children are also eligible for the Medicare Child Dental Benefit Scheme which means our services can be provided at no cost to the families.

Your teeth are important and linked directly to your mouth and whole body. Small problems in your mouth are asymptomatic which is why regular check-ups are so important, it’s not as scary as you remember.

Dental on Demand SydneyIn just 10 months I have accrued enough business to take on a casual employee, and so far based in Sydney running from my home NSW wide.  My dream is to expand and have a number of mobile vehicles and dentists working as part of our team.  

The satisfaction of knowing I can succeed at my own business and being able to provide a service that may not have been used otherwise, keeps me going.  I have worked in the dental industry since finishing school and is the most rewarding job I could ever ask for.  

I am lucky to have found something I love doing and get paid to do it. I also love to travel, I love jumping on a plane and want to go everywhere on the planet.

“It always seems impossible until it’s done”, by Nelson Mandela, would have to be my favourite quote.  

Dental on DemansI feared going into a business that I didn’t know enough about running a business.  There were so many concepts, so many things I didn’t know how to do or that I needed to do when running my own business.  I overcame this fear by investing time, researching and speaking to other business owners and recommend investing the time to do just that. If you are taking that step, don’t be shy, ask, ask and ask some more questions.

I even have a french bulldog with an underbite, she has the silliest face I have ever seen, she’s very cheeky and likes my husband better than me but at least she lets me clean her teeth.
