Motivating women to care for their pelvic floor health

NIHR Devices for Dignity HTC (D4D), in collaboration with the Bladder and Bowel Foundation, has produced a new video to motivate women and teenage girls to look after their pelvic health.

“We wanted to create a video that explains the importance of the pelvic floor muscle exercises,” said Nicola Heron, programme manager at D4D. “Most teenagers aren’t aware of their pelvic floor. It’s unusual for young women to have pelvic floor problems but being aware of the pelvic floor can help them keep it in shape and avoid problems when they are older.”
