Listen to Bec Judd explain th+e importance of pelvic floor exercises on the latest episode of Hello Bump.
“I would definitely get cracking on your pelvic floor exercises. So if you’re listening now ladies, clench up from your bumhole to your vagina and lift those muscles up like your stopping yourself from weeing,” she explains.
“It’s important that you go all the way back – this is the physio talking to me in my mind, I’m just relaying what she says to me – and you hold it for 10 seconds. Then after you’ve done those reps, you do 10 really quick ‘flicks’, so you just go on and off.
“Make sure you really let it go between turning it on and off and do that three times a day. Then you will stop yourself from weeing your pants for the rest of your life every time you laugh at a funny joke or sneeze or run down a hill.”
