Jean Hailes Foundation Information Sheet

This series covers information sheets about POP from professional health organisations. These pages, though they don't necessarily go into a great deal of detail, are a good place to start. They help you gain a clear understanding of POP.

Prolapse & bladder weakness
The Jean Hailes Foundation is an Australian charity that promotes research and awareness of women's health issues.

Their prolapse information sheet can be found here: Prolapse and Bladder Weakness.

Their information sheet on prolapse is quite detailed, and has a really clear focus on giving women accurate information on which to base their decisions.

The key strengths of this information sheet include:
  • A clear diagram showing types of prolapse
  • A table showing the degrees of prolapse
  • A table showing the different types of tests that you may have to undergo, and what they involve
  • A table showing treatment and management options
  • It was updated recently (January 2014), to bring it in line with current research
The Jean Hailes Foundation may also be able to help you with other women's health issues. They can be contacted within business hours on 1800 JEAN HAILES (532 642).
