There are some exercises you can do to prepare your body for labor. These exercises work on the muscles that will be used the most during delivery and labor. Some of these exercises include kegel exercises, pelvic tilt, tailor sitting, and squatting. Kegel exercises consists of tightening your pelvic floor muscles. These are the muscles around your vagina and anus. You can find these muscles by trying to stop the flow of urine in the middle of going to the bathroom. Once you are able to stop urination that means you have found the right muscles. However, kegel exercises should only be practiced on an empty bladder, otherwise it can lead to urinary tract infections or a weakening of the muscles. This exercise should be done about five times in a row while you tighten your muscles for about five to ten seconds. You can relax for about ten seconds between tries. The pelvic tilt exercise helps to relieve backache which you may experience during labor, by strengthening your abdominal muscles. This exercise can be down by getting on your hands and knees while keeping your head straight in line with your back. Make sure to pull in your abdomen by tilting your hips forward and also try to round your back. Try to hold that position for a few seconds, relax and then repeat. Tailor sitting helps make delivery easier by helping to keep your pelvic joints flexible which increases blood flow to your lower body. It also improves the muscles in your back. You can do this exercise by sitting on the floor with your back straight, bringing the bottom of your feet together so that your heels are facing you and your knees should be drop out to the sides. This will make you feel a stretch in your inner thighs. Squatting is another important exercise. If you are able to do some squats while you are in labor, it may help open your pelvic outlet so that your baby has more room to come down. Practice squatting in the last few months of pregnancy. You do this by standing straight with your feet shoulder width apart. Still keeping your back straight and heels on the floor, lower your body into a squat position. Try to hold this position for about twenty to thirty seconds, relax and repeat a few more times.

While some people think that housing, government, politics, entertainment, mortgages, banking, philosophy, and religion are among the most interesting subjects of intellectual discussion I believe that the care and education we have about our children and the birth and development of our children, may rank even higher. I, Isaac Robert Toussie, believe that children are our future, and if you will pardon my expression, I believe they represent the greatest miracle G-d has ever given us.

Bringing a child into this world is one of the most wonderful feelings you can have. These exercises help to relieve some of the labor pains. Try practicing these exercises in the last two months of pregnancy, and it can help to prepare your body for delivery. I don’t recall the extent of President George Bush’s or President Obama’s campaign focus on children and issues concerning children but future presidents would surely be praised for focusing on children during their campaigns and later during their presidential tenures.
