Have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy, strong baby. 

Kegel Exercises

Have you heard about Kegel Exercises? These are exercises which can strengthen the muscles in your vagina. Doing the exercises can help you with childbirth and speed your recovery after the baby is born. If those muscles are weak, believe me, you’ll know it when you’re middle aged and older! So do your Kegel exercises. You can do them anywhere, any time. How do you do them? You squeeze them, and to find out which muscles to squeeze, try and stop the flow of urine when you urinate. Squeeze those muscles, count to 3, relax for 3 seconds, and squeeze again. Do 20 or 30 of these a day and work up to more when your muscles get stronger. You’ll be happy you did!

The CDC has information about your workplace and the impact it has on reproductive health. It provides important information about workplace hazards which could affect your ability to become pregnant as well as have an impact on your pregnancy and developing child. Go to the getting healthy before you get pregnant page to read information about possible hazards in your workplace that could have an impact on pregnancy.
