3/8 - Advice to pregnant women

Updated: Apr 17

Amanda Savage is a women's health physio with 20+ years of experience and the Public Relations Officer for the POGP, the UK's professional association of Pelvic, Obstetric and Gynaecological Physiotherapists. In this exclusive interview to Anya Smirnova, Amanda covers all the key topics on female pelvic health in eight short videos.

  • Daily pelvic floor exercises reduce the risk of developing incontinence during and after the pregnancy, help you feel stronger supported for your back during your pregnancy, and help you recover more quickly after giving birth.

  • Short strong squeezes.

  • Medium hold, long squeezes.

  • Keep your abdominal muscles working.

  • Attend an antenatal class with a qualified professional to learn how to do the exercises correctly.
