"The female pelvis, comprising the organs, muscles, and other tissues of the pelvic region, is important not only for sexuality but the processes of childbirth and elimination. This text begins with a description of the functional anatomy of the pelvic region, and how it responds to the process of childbirth. It includes a series of specific exercises that increase the flexibility, strength, and coordination of each of the pelvic region functions. There are guidelines that focus on particular phases of a woman's life cycle. Written in easy-to-understand yet anatomically precise language, and illustrated with over 250 drawings, this book will help women optimize their health by becoming more familiar with this unique and vital aspect of their anatomy."
