Place your hands on your hips and feel the hard bone. That's your bowl-shaped pelvis, which protects part of your digestive, reproductive and bladder system.
Your pelvis is attached to three types of bones – part of your backbone and your hip bones. It supports your body weight helps you stand in an upright position.
Did you know?
The opening in the middle of the female pelvis is wider than in men. This is to allow enough room for a baby's head to squeeze through during birth.
