New charity to support locals with endometriosis and pelvic pain

A new charity organisation, Magnolia Health, is now active on the Sunshine Coast, focusing on providing comprehensive support and advocacy for people dealing with endometriosis and pelvic pain. The not-for-profit aims to build a community where individuals can connect, find support, and get the resources they need for better health and well-being. By educating the public and fostering understanding, the organisation strives to break down stigmas and promote better approaches to treatment.

According to Alice Paine, founder and director of Magnolia Health, “Endometriosis, a common condition seen by doctors, can cause debilitating pelvic pain and significantly impact a person’s quality of life. Magnolia Health recognises that heavy or painful periods and other pelvic pain symptoms are not normal and should not be brushed aside.”

One of the key initiatives of Magnolia Health charity is the launch of a community support group tailored for women with pelvic pain and endometriosis. This group offers a safe space where people can share their experiences, seek support, and connect with others who understand the challenges associated with these conditions.

The charity also offers care packages for women after surgery, community events, and resources to take control and empower them on a journey to better health.

Alice emphasises, “If you or someone you know is experiencing pelvic pain or suspects endometriosis, it’s essential to seek a referral to see a gynaecologist for an accurate diagnosis and a personalised treatment plan. Remember, you’re not alone—Magnolia Health is here to offer support, guidance, and a community of people who share similar experiences.”

“Together, let’s build a supportive network and create a brighter future for those living with endometriosis and pelvic pain on the Sunshine Coast,”
says Alice.
