THIS IS FOR:

HOST: Sheren Gaulbert – Vulval Pain Society Trustee, Pain Science Educator, therapist and former patient (vulvodynia and other persisting pain)
WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT:
- At least 1 in 7 experience vulval pain in their life, so the likelihood is that even if you are not aware, someone you know may be going through this pain right now or do so in future. Knowledge is power, it’s time for change.
