Pelvic Floor Focus

The Pelvic Floor muscle is a wonderful, hard working part of the body that deserves a special kind of attention it often misses out on! Maintenance of strong pelvic floor is essential to continence (bladder and bowel health) and sexual function - so why don’t we show it more love?

Pelvicfloor.nz is a new resource aimed at educating and empowering, by offering a wide range of information and advice regarding:

  • Why the pelvic floor is important
  • How to ensure your pelvic floor muscle stays healthy
  • What kind of exercises can be damaging
  • Who is at risk of pelvic floor dysfunction.

And more...

From expert medical advice to personal interviews, pelvicfloor.nz is here as a support resource for everyone: from fitness professionals to new mums and beyond.

We hope you find us helpful - please get in touch to find out more, tell your story or just say hi!
