Pelvic Exercises Ease First-Time Labor
BMJ Study Shows Kegel Exercises Can Stave Off Prolonged Labor
A recent RCT in BMJ found that women who workout their pelvic muscles by doing Kegel exercises during the last few months of pregnancy have an easier time giving birth.
The researchers investigated whether pelvic exercises could affect the duration of labor and shorten the time to deliver. When it was time to give birth, the study authors recorded the lengths of the different stages of labor.
