Everything Postnatal

Weakened Pelvic Floor


After all the pushing, squeezing and tearing during childbirth, our pelvic floor muscles became weakened. There are several exercises you should practice daily to strengthen your muscles.

Kegel Exercises

Practice kegel exercise in combination with one of the following positions, e.g.  cross-legged position, Child's pose or lying on your back.

To begin, firmly tense the muscles around your vagina and anus. As if you are trying to stop the flow of urine midstream while peeing on the toilet. Tense for 5 seconds and relax for 5 seconds. Repeat each set at least 10 times at a time. Practice as many times as you can daily for optimal results.
