When I was pregnant with my twins, my sister, who is a mom of three urged me to do Kegel exercises to strengthen the muscles that support my uterus. These exercises are known to make childbirth easier during labor and delivery. Carrying twins is considered high risk and even though, I ended up needing a C-Section, kegel exercises were key after pregnancy to help tighten and build up the pelvic floor muscles and improve overall sexual health and pleasure (let’s be real, this is super important and very necessary when new moms are stressed and need an outlet to release the anxiety that comes with parenting). Since carrying twins did a number on my body – feel like I am still not back to being where I was prior to pregnancy – I discovered KegelSmart by Intimina which has really helped me strengthen my pelvic floor muscles.
The KegelSmart uses touch sensor technology to register your pelvic floor strength and set an exercise that works best with your body. Developed by gynecologist it also gives you peace of mind that woman is behind this product. Aside from helping strengthen your pelvic floor muscles it also helps your body prepare for future healthy pregnancies if that is on the horizon for you.
This little pink device includes five levels, and it registers muscle strength and automatically set the exercise level. I used it for a couple of weeks and switched from level 3 to 4. Love it because it’s really simple to use – you just contract when it vibrates and rest when it stops. Except this, it is made from medical grade silicone and it’s 100% waterproof so you can simply clean it with hot water.
After pregnancy and child birth your body goes through so much so it’s reassuring to know that there is a product out there made by experts to help your body recover and regain its strength! You can buy it in the CVS stores or online – check the details here.
