Meet the Pelvic Organ Party Members
By Denise Gittins, Founder & Creator
Please meet all of the members of the Pelvic Organ Party. We don’t discriminate, and you don’t have to be a pelvic organ to be a part of this group of partiers!
An important thing to remember is that WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. The body is a system that in turn, is made up of many internal systems. We’ve all heard of the respiratory system, the digestive system, and the circulatory system. And those are just some of the amazing systems we have in our body.
Let’s start by learning a little about each of these partiers we have pictured here:
Bladder: A hollow, muscular organ that stores urine from the kidneys
Rectum: A part of the digestive system and is the one who, after stool is passed to Rectum, says to you: “Hey! It’s time to find a toilet!”
Uterus: A hollow muscular organ the size and shape of a pear whose main function is to nourish a developing fetus prior to birth
Vagina: An elastic, hollow tube with soft, flexible lining that connects Uterus to the outside world
Diaphragm: A thin, skeletal muscle that is the primary muscle used for breathing
Lungs: Usually come in a pair: Right Lung has three lobes and is larger than Left Lung which has only two lobes!
Pelvic Floor: A hammock of muscles that support the pelvic organs. Each of the pelvic organs have a passage through the muscles to the outside world!
