MD For Moms Radio, Every Wednesday 1pm (ET) on The BBM Global Network and TuneIn Radio.
This week on MD for Moms, I interview Cecile Urrea, advisor for Elvie, the first and only award winning kegel exercise trainer. Bladder control issues affect more women than seasonal allergies do, yet we never talk about the former, right? The time to discuss these issues is now, and we will on this week’s show.
Women are expected to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles with kegels, though few of us know how and even fewer of us actually try. Elvie takes the guesswork out of kegels, also making the exercises fun. Using Blue tooth technology, Elvie connects to your phone and leads you through pelvic floor workouts.
Weak pelvic floor muscles affect many women often with embarrassing consequences. These muscles sit like a hammock between your tailbone and your pelvic bone; weakness leads to things like poor bladder control, less enjoyable sex, and even prolapse. And it only takes 5 minutes a day, three or more days a week. The question is, why haven’t we all tried Elvie yet?
