pelvic floor exerciseThese muscles play a very important role around pregnancy and so need extra attention.

These can be done anywhere, anytime without anyone knowing.

Because of the strain the Pelvic Floor Muscles come under during pregnancy and childbirth they need to be strengthened starting as soon as possible after the birth.

To strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, imagine you are trying to stop yourself passing wind and at the same time trying to stop your flow of urine in midstream.

The feeling is one of ‘squeeze and lift’ closing and drawing up the back and front passages. Continue to lift for as long as you can (up to 10 seconds). Release, Rest and repeat. Aim to build up to 10 repetitions at a time.
