What can I do to improve my pelvic muscles after childbirth?

In order to improve your pelvic muscles after childbirth, you can try doing Kegel exercises, squats, controlled breathing or Pilates exercises.

Childbirth can be strenuous for the pelvic muscles and weakened or atrophied muscles unavoidably cause urinary problems.

In support of the new moms who struggle with control of the bladder, there are a series of physical exercises to do.

The Kegel exercises, squats, controlled breathing, and Pilates exercises practiced at sustained pace and routine can improve the natural, healthy function of the muscles in a non-invasive manner, with significant results.
