Pelvic floor friendly exercises

Pelvic floor friendly exercises refer to exercises that place less stress on your pelvic floor.  These are suitable for people who experience, or are at risk of, pelvic floor problems.

The best program is one that has been specifically developed by a fitness professional or continence professional however - as no two people are the same.

It can be tricky to figure out what exercises are pelvic floor friendly, and what exercises are not. As a general rule, try to avoid high impact or high intensity exercises that place downward pressure on your pelvic floor.
