Strengthen pelvic muscles

The past century has seen a dramatic fall in maternal morbidity and mortality especially in developed counties. Women now have high expectations of pregnancy and childbirth and feel disillusioned when complications occur later. One such issue is pelvic floor problems.

The pelvic floor in a woman is a sheet of tissue comprising muscles and tendons that span the outlet of the pelvic bone at the level of the hip. It consists of symmetrically paired muscles (levator ani) enveloped by thickened supportive tissue called endopelvic fascia. The fascia not only separates these openings but also provides circumferential support. The pelvic floor supports important organs like the uterus, the bladder and the bowel, which exit the pelvis through their respective openings.
