Question: What is kegel exercise? Is it beneficial during pregnancy
Kegel or pelvic floor exercises, are simple clench and release exercises which strengthen pelvic floor muscles. The pelvis is the region between the hips, which holds the uterus, bladder, small intestine, and rectum. The series of tissues and muscles that form a hammock or a sling at the bottom of your pelvis is called the pelvic floor. This hammock holds these organs in place and therefore controls the urine flow as well as the contraction of anal sphincter and vagina.
A weak pelvic floor can cause the pelvic muscles to bulge and descend into the vagina, and this condition is called pelvic organ prolapse. It leads to pelvic pressure and leakage of feces and urine. Kegel exercises significantly avoid this situation.
