    Bloody hell! Why would you want to tighten things up down there when you are due a baby. I would have thought loosening things up would be better.

    well if you do use them to tighten things up it will prob help avoid any possible accidents that can occur when sneezing during later pregnancy lol.

    I never had that problem but my sis told me she was constantly having accident and was to scared to go out in case she sneezed in public lol

    Exercising your pelvic floor muscles is actually very good for you during pregnancy.

    It does make sense to think that being as loose as possible down there will make things easier... it won't! The better your muscles are, the better they stretch.

    Your pelvic floor muscles are what help to guide your baby through the birth canal so if they're strong and stretchy it's very good for birth.

    Also, you need to do your pelvic floor exercises after the birth so you'd be giving yourself a head start if your muscles are already strong.

    I'd just recommend that the balls are cleaned thoroughly with sex toy cleaner before and after use! x
