Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Kegel Exercises were first devised by Dr Arnold Kegel in the 1950s to help his female patients strengthen the pelvic floor, particularly after giving birth. The muscles of the pelvic floor keep the bladder, rectum and vagina in place and if they become weakened/damaged due to childbirth or aging, things can get a little 'slack' down there and many women start to experience forms of incontinence. The simplest way to perform a Kegel is to stop the flow of urine when you go to the toilet - the muscles you contract will be those of the pelvic floor.  Unfortunately, it is very easy to do Kegels incorrectly - and to be honest, you can actually do more harm than good by doing them wrong. In this instance, you may like to consider using a pelvic toner/exerciser. These come in many different forms to suit all lifestyles and budgets. Please visit <a href="http://www.pelvic-toners.co.uk/pelvic_toners/pelvic_toners_pt">Pelvic Toners</a> for further information. You can also call them and speak to a female representative who will give friendly, free, confidential advice as to what might help your own personal circumstances.
