The Purple Fig is partnering with The Belle Method to host an intimate uncensored cocktail Q’n’A evening with a group of fabulous, talented mom advisors.

From 6:30 to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, November 25, this event at Smock Café in Toronto will be the perfect evening for mothers to network, drink wine and hear what these explicitly open experts have to say about sex after kids and pelvic floor health. We’re talking about all the below-the-belt-nitty-gritties. The good, the bad, and all sorts of stuff that well, mama didn’t tell us.

We’d love to have our TPF readers come out, raise a glass, and catch an interactive and intimate talk from one of our four featured experts. What Mama Didn’t Tell Us is featuring Dr. Sinead Dufour, a pelvic health physiotherapist; Kimberly Moffit, a TV relationship expert and founder of KMA Therapy; Carol Anne Austin, a sex expert and therapist at KMA Therapy; and Nikki Bergen, the founder of fitness philosophy The Belle Method. Presentations kick off at 7 p.m., with a chance to sip cocktails and mingle before and after.

If you’ve been waiting for a ladies’ night out and you’re in the Toronto area, this is the perfect opportunity to unwind, relax and meet some open and honest, cool new mom friends. For those of you unable to attend in person, we will have online footage of the evening posted on The Purple Fig shortly after the event.
