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.
