Rugby World Cup; Deborah Frances-White; Town v country
The latest from the Women's Rugby World Cup in Paris.
According to new NHS figures for England the number of children aged between 10 and 14 turning up at hospital after deliberately hurting themselves has risen by 70 per cent in the past two years, a rise of more than 2,700. Child Line says they have had a 41% increase overall in calls about self-harm since 2011. Jane talks to Lucie Russell, director of campaigns and media from the charity Young Minds.
Many women who suffer from pelvic pain have a 'hypertonic pelvic floor', which means that their pelvic muscles are in spasm. Jane is joined by Vicky Keates, a specialist women's health physiotherapist to discuss how pelvic pain can make sex and even sitting down almost impossible, and why more GP's need to refer women with this problem to a physiotherapist.
If you've just spent the last couple of weeks on holiday in the country has it made you think about moving there full time? What are the implications of uprooting your family and moving out of the city for a life in countryside? Does it offer a better lifestyle or is the rural idylls not all it's cracked up to be?
And stand-up comedian Deborah Frances-White talks about how searching for her birth mother inspired her one woman show Half a Can of Worms.
Presented by Jane Garvey
Producer Beverley Purcell.
Hypertonic Pelvic Floor
Many women who suffer from pelvic pain have a ‘hypertonic pelvic floor’, which means that their pelvic muscles are in spasm. We all know that we are supposed to strengthen our pelvic floor but what happens when they become too tight? Jane is joined by Francesca who suffered from acute pelvic pain and Vicky Keates, a specialist women’s health physiotherapist, to discuss how pelvic pain can make sex and even sitting down almost impossible, and why more GP’s need to refer women with this condition to a physiotherapist.

Deborah Frances White
Stand-up comedian Deborah Frances White was adopted at just 10 days old. She had no idea who or where her biological parents were living until stumbling across her birth mother’s electoral records during a late-night Google search in 2012. She’s turned her experiences of tracing her family into a one-woman show called Half a Can of Worms which is running at the Edinburgh Fringe this month. She joins Jane to talk about the life-changing experience of tracing her birth family and about her roots in Australia.
Family Life and the Countryside
If you’ve just spent the last couple of weeks on holiday in the country has it made you think about moving their full time? What are the implications of uprooting your family and moving out of the city for a life in countryside? Does it offer a better lifestyle or is the rural idylls not all it’s cracked up to be? The Interior designer Chris Kearns, has moved back to the North West with her husband and two young daughters, and Jane Alexander, who has lived in Exmoor for 20 years but wants to moved back to city life, join Jane to talk about the joys and the pitfalls of the urban-rural divide.
