MEE ACTIVE has designed this program to help educate women about the power of the core and pelvic floor so you can live a symptom free life
DID YOU KNOW?
1 in 3 women who have had a baby in their lifetime have bladder incontinence
Most women do not understand or know how to locate the pelvic floor muscles
1 in 10 Australian women develop prolapse of their pelvic organs
Pelvic floor exercises help to strengthen the muscles in the pelvic region and can also help with symptoms of prolapse
As we age pelvic organ prolapse is more likely to occur if we do not strengthen our pelvic floor muscles.
Bottom line: Understand how to use your pelvic floor muscles.
Women with pelvic floor dysfunction are scared or nervous to exercise for fear of making their condition worse and often do not know where to start.
With our Focus on core program, we work closely with the individual to ensure they understand how important breath is as part of exercise and movement and to tune into their body to make intrinsic movement connections between the mind and body.
Often women do not understand the Core and Pelvic Floor system so we educate and make them aware of the importance of this system in everyday life.
Our Focus on Core program offers a safe space for women to explore just what their body can do with the power of breath and the core system techniques.
Our program is unique and completely individualised for each woman.
We believe that everyone is very different and will ensure our approach is individualised.
Every woman should understand how to exercise the pelvic floor.
These muscles are just like every other muscle in the body and need to be working efficiently with the ability to be able to relax and be strong.
Functions of the pelvic floor muscles:
Provide support for internal organs
Aids in sexual function
Help to hold the bladder, bowel and uterus in their correct place
Help stabilise and support the spine
What can you do to stop pelvic floor dysfunction?
It is never too late to start pelvic floor strengthening exercises
Keep good bladder and bowel habits.
Don’t do a “just in case” wee as this may cause you to be able to hold less in your bladder but also don’t hold on too long until you cannot wait any longer to empty your bladder.
Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables for fibre
Make sure you completely empty your bladder each time you go to the toilet

Why did I create the Focus on Core Program?
After attending a seminar on the core and pelvic floor I was immediately captured by the information I was learning and decided to take this back to my clients. After serveying all of my clients I found that a staggering 90% of these women have some form of pelvic dysfunction. I then decided that I must continue with this work so I went about studying further to completely understand the core and pelvic floor.
Little did I know that 1 year after designing and testing the program I would find out my own personal story of pelvic dysfunction.
This of course nurtured me to really push this subject far and wide and the results speak for themselves.
