Pelvic Floor First

After nearly 18 months of extensive consultation and collaboration the Continence Foundation is excited to finally announce the launch of Pelvic Floor First.

Pelvic Floor First is a national campaign that promotes pelvic floor safe exercise, so that Australians with, or at risk of, pelvic floor dysfunction are able to stay active.

The campaign has produced a wide range of free information resources for both the general public and exercise professionals, which include:

  • a consumer brochure
  • an exercise professional brochure
  • a wallet-sized referral card, and
  • pelvic floor dysfunction screening tools.
