What started as a film exploring the experiences of pregnant women in Kenya rapidly became a historical journey into the shocking cruelty suffered by some Irish women during childbirth in the 1950's and 1960's. Symphysiotomies involved breaking the woman's pelvis during childbirth - using a hacksaw. This break would enable the pelvis to be stretched wider - with disastrous consequences for the mothers.
'Dry January' is your chance to feel better, save money and make a difference to your pelvic floor too. That's right - laying off the booze (at least for January) will not only help reduce your waistline and save you pennies - but also help your pelvic floor. The 'Dry January' campaign is being run by Alcohol Concern urging drinkers to shun 'loopy juice'.

Anyone who saw the recent BBC series 'The Men Who Made Us Fat' may have been shocked to learn of the impact that sugar has had on our diets and waistlines - now it seems that 'impact' hits our pelvic floor muscles too.
Following The Daily Mail covering incontinence in their health pages, our Managing Director Stephanie Taylor wrote with her reply to the article.
First of all I must congratulate you for tackling such a taboo subject as incontinence as you did in the piece that appeared yesterday.
This really is the last taboo Justine, and we here at Kegel8 try to do our best to educate and inform women of options and to try to instil in them that like brushing your teeth, pelvic floor exercises are a vital part of looking after your body and need to be done daily.
