October 9 2004 at 10:28 AM

i was wondering if anyone could help? im currently 5 months pregnant with my second child,my first was long and painful labour which ended with me having to have an episiotomy and forceps as you can imagine my pelvic floor was quite damaged and although not as strong as before i have managed to concieve this time and all is well apart from the fact that i have started to leak urine and im worried i wont be able to carry this child fullterm.Ive searched the web looking at all types of devices to strengthen pc muscles but none seem safe to use in pregnancy can a km help me now ????

It depends

Dear JR:

You have waited a long time to address this issue.

Nothing I am saying should be substituted for medical advice and someone with a history like your's should consult with a doctor.

The Kegelmaster CAN be used when pregnant, and should be helpful, but it is extremely important that it be used correctly when pregnant.

The most important element is NOT to use any abdominal muscles to "help" do the contractions.

Thanks for your interest.

There simply is no treatment or device as effective as the Kegelmaster. Along with the "Second Device" which we provide FREE, it is virtually failureproof.
