Welcome to the Continence Foundation of Australia

The pelvic floor in 3D

Visualise your pelvic floor and see exactly what it is, where it's located and why it is important to train this hidden group of muscles.

These 3D videos for women and men show you how the pelvic floor muscle moves and supports bladder and bowel control.

For more information and advice, phone the National Continence Helpline on 1800 33 00 66.
