    Forgot to mention this last week but thought I should pass it on.

    I thought that the pelvic floor was just there to keep your bits together and to stop you peeing yourself.

    There is another reason for all these exercises and I only found out last week.

    The pelvic floor also helps to turn the babies head during labour! A flabby pelvic floor doesn't turn the head as easily and the labour is longer! :shock:

    She says squeezing her muscles tightly! :roll:

    Keep squeezing girls! :lol:

    Apologies if you already knew this!

    I can't do them either, makes me feel a bit sick actually.. that's odd!!!

    It gives me the shivers all over when I do that, so I stopped. Am I the only one this happens to???
