If you're an expectant mum, you'll have heard all about pelvic floor muscles. Working on these helps ease problems in pregnancy and post pregnancy, including light bladder weakness.
Working on your pelvic floor muscles helps strengthen your "core". What we mean by "core" is the connection between our upper and lower body, the groups of different muscles working together. A great way to work on your core is with pelvic floor exercises.
If you have a strong core, your body becomes more resilient to the daily external pressure it goes through. For example even every day jobs such as lifting the washing basket is reliant on your core, without it, our upper bodies would collapse. A strong core can also alleviate and help ward off light bladder weakness in expectant mums. Watch this video to learn exercises to help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and help to avoid bladder weakness.
Be careful when exercising when you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If in doubt consult your doctor about the level of exercise for you.>> Back to lights by TENA homepage>> Video: Pelvic floor exercises for new mums
