Pelvic Floor Exercises and
Getting To Know Your Pelvic Floor

Your pelvic floor is made up of muscles, ligaments and tissues that hold your pelvic organs in place. It’s responsible for holding and supporting your:
Bladder Uterus and your Bowel

These super muscles also support three openings:
Front (urethra), middle (vagina) and back (anus)

Your pelvic floor shouldn’t be too tight or too saggy if it’s to do its job properly in supporting your bladder, uterus and bowel.

What causes a weak or dysfunctional pelvic floor?

Your pelvic floor is part of your core. The uncontained intra-abdominal pressure inside your abdomen has nowhere to go, so that’s when it pushes down and out, causing pelvic floor weakness, and diastasis recti or core weakness. Certain exercises and alignment adjustments can help to restore and strengthen your core and pelvic floor.

97% of women who couldn’t successfully locate or engage their pelvic floor muscles before, were able to after using MUTU System.*

Stress Incontinence (SUI)

Frequently called: Weak bladder, bladder weakness, bladder leakage, “oops moment”, “little leaks”.

When you leak a little or a lot during exercise, when you sneeze or laugh (literally ‘pmsl’), this is Stress Incontinence (SUI). It can feel embarrassing, lonely and it can destroy your self-esteem. If you feel overwhelmed right now, rest assured there is help for you, you can live a leak free life and you will feel better again. You don’t have to put up with leaks or mask the problem with a pad, just because you had a baby.

92% of women who had experienced bladder symptoms including urinary leakage saw improvement after using MUTU System.*

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Also Known As: Pelvic Prolapse or ‘POP’

Different Types of Prolapse

Cystocele (bladder prolapse), rectocele (rectal prolapse), enterocele (small intestine prolapse), vaginal prolapse and uterine prolapse (uterus).

Causes of Pelvic Prolapse

Prolapse is caused by a damaged or weakened pelvic floor. In this instance, your pelvic floor can no longer do its job to hold up and support your pelvic organs.

Pelvic Prolapse symptoms can feel really uncomfortable, sometimes painful and can impact on your mental and physical wellbeing. Symptoms include:

88% of women suffering from symptoms of Pelvic Organ Prolapse reported improvement after using MUTU System.*

Painful sex

Sex might not even be on your radar right now, but if you are dealing with pain during sex and just accepting it as your new norm, MUTU can help.

Why does sex hurt and what can you do to enjoy pain free intercourse?

Sex can be painful for a number of reasons, first and foremost, if you haven’t already, you should speak to a women’s health physiotherapist so they can help determine the best course of treatment for you. Reasons sex can hurt after having a baby:

Pelvic Organ Prolapse. When the pelvic muscles can’t support your pelvic organs, this causes a prolapse and one of the symptoms of POP is pain or discomfort during sex.

A ‘too tight’ or ‘hypertonic’ pelvic floor. Meaning you can’t let go of and relax your pelvic floor muscles. This can be caused by physical or emotional trauma, from Kegeling and engaging too much, and from holding in or sucking in your core and pelvic floor. You need to learn how to release effectively before building strength again. Learning how to engage and release correctly is key.

89% of women who experienced pain or discomfort during or after sexual intercourse reported an improvement after doing MUTU System.* 

Pelvic Floor Exercises

Find and work those muscles!

Your GP, midwife, health visitor or physio may have spoken to you about Kegel exercises. But furiously squeezing while you wait at the traffic lights isn’t going to cut it if you want to learn how to get it right, banish symptoms and give you pelvic floor some TLC.

Learning how to properly engage and release your pelvic floor is where you should begin. Try this simple and gentle exercise to start your mind talking to those muscles again.

Step 1Inhale and let your stomach muscles and pelvic floor relax. Let it all go.

Step 2Next, exhale and lift your pelvic floor. To make this easier, imagine you are picking up a peanut with your vagina or sucking a smoothie through a straw.

Step 3Then breathe in and relax those muscles being careful not to forcefully bulge or push down

Step 4Repeat a few times until you get the hang of it.

Step 5Victory dance! You can now engage and release your pelvic floor properly. Hooray!
