A Practical Guide to Solving Your Most Intimate Problems

This is the first pelvic floor health book aimed at ALL women, including trans women, outlining the importance of understanding your pelvic floor and how it impacts on overall health, fitness and wellbeing for life – not just around pregnancy and childbirth.

The pelvic floor is the group of muscles spanning the pelvis, supporting all your movement, keeping your internal organs inside and controlling the escape of bodily fluids. Incontinence is one of the most common symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction. Incontinence is the #2 reason people are admitted to a care home as it affects quality of life so severely. It is preventable and curable, if you know how to strengthen your pelvic floor.

The book is written with humour, honesty and sass, by a pelvic health coach.

This book outlines symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction, and shows you how to fix them.

What is pelvic organ prolapse – which 50% of women will experience – and can it be prevented?

Urinary incontinence is treatable with physio. Women on average suffer symptoms for 7 years before going to a healthcare professional which has a huge effect on mental health.

Pelvic floor issues are often only talked about in relation to pregnancy and childbirth. This is not just a “mum issue”: high impact exercise (running, HIIT, CrossFit) affect the pelvic floor. Young athletes /gymnasts who have never had children are highly likely to suffer from incontinence.

Women should not accept dysfunction as a “normal part of being a woman”, but instead need to prioritize their pelvic floor health – this book shows that it is never too early and, crucially, never too late to do so.
