Kegel Corner

Sorry diamonds, Kegels are a girl’s best friend

The Kegel Corner supports, encourages and invites women to join the pelvic floor health conversation. And pelvic floor health begins and ends with the Kegel. Contracting and releasing your pelvic muscles helps to prevent and reverse the effects of pelvic floor disorders, such as incontinence and prolapse. Simply put, Kegels work.

Pregnant? Keep Kegeling

Leaking urine after having a baby doesn’t have to be the new norm. Doing Kegels before, during and after pregnancy can help.

How You Know They’re Working

Just Relax

Conscious relaxation of your pelvic floor muscles is just as important as contracting them. Failing to release your Kegel contractions fully can overwork the muscles and cause discomfort.
