Dur­ing preg­nancy, there e is iis in­creased pres­sure on the pelvic floor. As a weak pelvic floor can lead to in­con­ti­nence, it’s im­por­tant to do Kegel ex­er­cises ev­ery day. Sit with a straight back and squeeze the mus­cles around your front and back pas­sages – al­most as though you’re try­ing not to pee. Hold for eight sec­onds, then re­lease. Do this ex­er­cise as many times as you can sev­eral times a day.
