Women are complex. Not just our minds! Our bodies are extremely complex, like men, only different. There are a large number of organs in a small space in our pelvis. The bladder, the womb, ovaries and intestines are all within this bony space sitting above the pelvic floor. In a woman’s lifetime she may go through pregnancy, childbirth, heavy lifting, sports, weight gain and the delicate pelvic organs are all supported by this muscle group.
