Definition

The pelvic bone, or pelvis, is located between the hips and perineum. The pelvic region is comprised of bones like the sacrum and coccyx, and structures such as the rectum, urinary system, and reproductive organs. The pelvis plays a major role in supporting the skeleton. In women, it also holds the fetus during pregnancy and allows the baby to be born during childbirth.
