How often should I do Kegels while pregnant?
Practicing every so often—day or evening—will make your pelvic floor toned and healthy. During pregnancy (and after) make a plan to practice your Kegels about 2-3 times a day, for a few minutes.
Do Kegels prepare for labor?
Kegel exercises strengthen your pelvic floor muscles — one of the best ways to help your body prepare for birth and recovery afterwards. We recommend doing them daily, as soon as you find out you’re pregnant, and right up until delivery day.
How do Kegel exercise for normal delivery?
Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, helping to prevent the urinary incontinence that’s common after childbirth. To do Kegels, squeeze the muscles around the vagina as if you are stopping the flow of urine; hold for 10 seconds, breathing normally, then slowly release. Do 20 reps five times a day.
