problem with rose bush branches falling over

we have four David Austin shrub roses very vigorous and floriferous. every may/june as they are growing strongly, branches which start from low down on the bushes fall over at the point where they grow from the main stem, and die. is it something i am doing when i pruned? with the heavy rain and wind this last week it has been worse than ever. kind regards Grainne (shagra) shagra, Kilmacthomas, Co Waterford Posted: 06/06/2017

They appear to have been pruned too hard for shrub roses and fed too well at the same time. They are breaking away from the branch and withering.
