the subtle muscles of the pelvic floor

Sorry to go down so below ladies, but I feel this is an important issue to attend to.  Finally I have decided to be more proactive. Having had a posterior birth, things are not quite the same.  I consulted an excellent physiotherapist and realised even I was doing the exercises incorrectly.  I had been using more of my abdominal muscles and a pelvic floor contraction is quite distinct and much more subtle than this.  With real time ultrasound this was pointed out to me and gave me great bio-feedback.  If you have any issues relating to this I would say find local expert help as above and get more one on one instruction.  It will really help when change of life and age starts being more of a reality.

I think the more that is said about pelvic floors the better. So many women suffer needlessly.
