By Sabrina Nieland, Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist
"In its function, the pelvic floor makes a closing and lifting forward movement, which means it narrows your anus, your vagina and then your urethra and then lifts itself into your pelvis.
For example, you can imagine closing a zip first over the anus, then the vagina and finally the urethra. You can check the tension by putting a finger on the outside of the perineum and feeling if the muscles around the perineum start to work and the perineum lifts a little inside you.
As the pelvic floor is mostly inside us, it is even more telling if you feel with a finger inside the vagina whether the muscles grip your finger and pull it up when you activate. Because that's what a functioning pelvic floor feels like."
