Are pelvic floor exercises good during pregnancy? Why? Can you please mention the different pelvic exercises and it's advantages?

yes this is good during pregnancy. The pelvic floor muscles form a broad sling between your legs. They stretch from the pubic bone at the front of your body to the base of your spine at the back. They help to hold your bladder, uterus (womb) and bowel in place. These muscles also give you control over when you empty your bladder or move your bowels.

Before doing pelvic exercises, you should consult or have a specialist to assist you doing this since this is very crucial if not done correctly; as you're conceiving a baby and we don't want the little angel to be at risk.

Pelvic tilt
This exercise is very important because it is the building block of good posture. It also strengthens your abdominal and back muscles, decreasing back strain and fatigue. Practice it often.

* Lie on your back with your knees bent.
* Inhale through your nose and tighten your stomach and buttock muscles.
* Flatten the small of your back against the floor and allow your pelvis to tilt upward.
* Hold for a count of five as you exhale slowly.
* Relax, repeat.

You can also perform the pelvic tilt on your hands and knees or standing up.

CAUTION: DO NOT arch your back, bulge your abdomen or push with your feet to obtain this motion!
