Hello mamas. At CloudMom, we’ve got a little tradition going of saying it like it is, of being honest and upfront about the issues facing us during pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum and with our kids. Sometimes these issues might strike us as embarrassing or too personal to discuss in public, but since they affect all of us, I’m of the mind that sharing in these private arenas helps us all.

To that end, let’s talk vaginas — YUP! Well, 5 babies having passed through mine, and there are some things that aren’t quite what they were. Sex hasn’t been an issue, thankfully. But sneezing has. In fact, since my first baby, sneezing poses a major problem. Sneeze while I’m walking down the street without crossing my legs and I’m in trouble in the bladder control area. OK, so I am officially embarrassed but now I’ve said it.
What to do? A while back, a close college friend of mine suggested Kegel exercises and I’ve been doing them ever since. They have really helped. Yet I’ve never really been sure how to do Kegels, and the problem has not entirely disappeared. My kids are still pretty young, but pretty soon they’re going to start asking what the he** I’m doing crossing my legs in the middle of the sidewalk!
How to Strengthen Pelvic Floor After Childbirth
Enter KegelSmart. This ingenious machine works as a personal trainer for your pelvic floor, taking all the guesswork out of pelvic floor exercises aka Kegels. You insert the cute little pink machine and contract when it vibrates and rest when it pauses. KegelSmart’s intelligent sensors do all the rest – from choosing the right routine to match your needs to remembering your level. With consistent use, you can have restored bladder control, faster healing after labor, regained vaginal tone and even improved sexual sensations. Gotta love that.
I’ve been using this machine for the past few months and noticed a huge difference. It’s become part of my daily routine.
How does KegelSmart work? Well, quite simple it mimics the cues your body gives when it’s time to engage your pelvic floor muscles – like when you laugh, sneeze or cough. It thus literally trains your pelvic floor to be responsive. Experts have found that with consistent use of KegelSmart, your pelvic floor will be strengthened and toned. You can restore your bladder control, regain your vaginal tone, and even improve sexual sensations.

Thank you! 🙂
Thanks for entering, Colleen!
I have to be honest… I have a very weak bladder and I haven’t even had kids yet. Sneezing, laughing, even an unexpected cough and I pee myself. Anyway, thank you for the chance to improve that 😀
It’s such a common issue among women that we should be talking more about it! Thanks so much for reading and entering, good luck xo
Great giveaway, great product!
Thanks for entering, Jessica! I agree 🙂
I may be well past post-birth but I do need to work the pelvic floor muscles for improved control of urine!
Definitely! It can be useful for women of all ages.
This reminds me of the rehab women get in France after giving birth to help strengthen their pelvis floor muscles. I love that there are options in the US now, like this one. And this sounds so convenient to be able to do at your own time at home!
Getting up there in age and cringe whenever I have to sneeze. This could be useful.
Definitely! Thanks so much for entering, good luck xo
Awesome prize! Can’t wait! 🙂
I agree!! Thanks so much for reading and entering xo
Kegels are very important. I often forget to do them. I really should since your pelvis floor helps with making sure so much down there works.
Yes! We forget how important it is and how much of an effect it can have on our daily lives as women. Thanks for reading!
I only entered because my friend really needs this and I entered on her link. Good luck
I could really use this! I even leak when I trip. :/
This would be so perfect for my wife.
Great giveaway. I could use something like this.
