The human body is an amazing thing, especially your pelvic floor. The different muscles and tissues that make up the pelvic floor work in harmony to support the bladder, bowel, uterus and the rest of the body. The pelvic floor truly is the core of your body and is the key to a healthy and happy life.

A call to the doctor included this comment “if your vagina falls out, don’t worry it’s like a child’s stress toy, just pop it back in”
It was meant as help..it was a lady doctor and she was really nice about it but it entered me into a rabbit hole of research and realising how common prolapses are and how little is being done about them...lots of women are just living with it. Ladies...if you take anything from this post DO YOUR PELVIC FLOOR EXERCISES EVERY DAY! RIGHT NOW..._DO THEM RIGHT NOW! ”
