While pregnancy and childbirth is a beautiful and exciting journey, it can sometimes be a stressful experience for the body, in particular for a woman's pelvic floor muscles.
A weakened pelvic floor is a common outcome of childbirth and one in three women will suffer from a weakened pelvic floor at some point in their lives. If you are currently one of these people, have no fear as there are plenty of great toners available that will help you strengthen your pelvic floor and overcome the frustrating issues, such as incontinence, that accompany weak pelvic floor muscles.
Pelvic floor trainers are designed to assist people with performing pelvic floor strengthening exercises, also known as Kegel exercises. Kegel exercises are safe for women with uncomplicated pregnancies however many Kegel toners, particularly electronic toners, should be avoided during pregnancy. We encourage you to speak to a health professional for advice on the right option for your body before you buy.
Finding the best toner will help you feel motivated and confident while you do your Kegels. In order to see results, our research indicates that you will need to spend on average between 10-15 minutes a day doing your Kegels. While the technical components and flashy designs of pelvic floor trainers can make them seem like a magic fix, at the end of the day, the most important factor in feeling muscle improvements is performing your exercises consistently and correctly.
