I‘m a 29 year old woman with two young children living in a remote community in the Kimberley region. Before having children I was fairly fit and enjoyed short distance running. I have since been reluctant to start jogging again as I wasn’t sure if my pelvic floor was strong enough and I rarely remembered to make time to do what I believed to be fairly boring pelvic floor exercises. Thanks to Dianne and the information outlined in ‘The Pregnancy Centre’ website I have now been able to incorporate a variety of exercises and stretches into a weekly exercise routine that specifically target strengthening my pelvic floor muscles. Now I find it more enjoyable and worthwhile to make time for pelvic floor exercises as I realise the importance in having a strong pelvic floor and how this improves whole body fitness. Eventually I will be able to build up to a short distance running program with confidence.
