    You can but don't usually use anything lol. Just squeeze your pelvic muscles like you're trying to hold in a pee and voila, kegels!

  • @sunnyside89 You don’t need any equipment to do kegels. It is an exercise to strengthen your pelvic floor and you can do it any time of the day. You just use the same muscles that you would use to stop peeing mid-stream. Imagine there’s a string attached to your perineum and your muscles are pulling the string upwards. 
    Kegels can help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, which in turn can reduce tearing during birth and make birth less straining on that area. Kegels also make recovery after birth better. 
    One other benefit is that kegels help with bladder control. Pregnancy and giving birth can really mess with your ability to hold your pee.
  • Last pregnancy I set an alarm during my 3rd tri to remind me to do them if I hadn’t done them yet that day.  That alarm was the only thing that reminded me to do them!!  Thanks for the reminder - setting the alarm now!! 😊
  • how many do you have to do per day?
  • Thanks ladies, truly appreciate this! 
  • Thank you for this thread! I think about it every time I got pee, which is a great time to do kettle.
