Kegel8 Mother Nurture has been especially designed as a 3-step system for pre-conception, labour and beyond.

Combining the power of a clinically-proven Kegel8 pelvic toner with a powerful labour TENS machine for when the big day arrives, Kegel8 Mother Nurture will help you in 3 great ways and is a must-have for any woman trying for a baby.

Pre-Conception

If you are thinking about trying for a baby, Kegel8 Mother Nurture features fantastic programmes to help you to get your pelvic floor muscles into their best ever shape before conception. During pregnancy, your pelvic floor has to carry the weight of your growing bump for 9 months, so it’s important that your pelvic floor muscles are strong to provide the best support for your baby and help with a smoother delivery. What’s more, with a strong pelvic floor you’ll have better bladder control and will be less likely to experience embarrassing leaks during pregnancy too. Kegel8 Mother Nurture features 2 brilliant pre-conception exercise programmes which work in just minutes a day to get your pelvic floor muscles strong and healthy for when you do become pregnant.

Labour

Kegel8 Mother Nurture features a powerful TENS machine pain relief programme, which helps to provide drug-free pain relief during labour. The labour TENS programme works with 4 skin electrodes placed either side of the spine. Mother Nurture sends a small electrical current to these electrodes, and this works to block pain signals from being sent to the brain and help to stimulate the body’s own natural painkilling endorphins. Between contractions, the TENS programme gives a soothing massage sensation, then during contractions you can press the BOOST button for an extra burst of pain relieving power.

Postnatal

Giving birth puts a great deal of stress on your pelvic floor muscles and Kegel8 Mother Nurture can help you get back in shape. Once you’ve had a successful 6-week midwife check-up, Kegel8 Mother Nurture’s unique ‘recovery’ programme will help your muscles to regain strength and help you to get back in pre-baby shape in just minutes a day.

Leaks after giving birth are incredibly common, with 1 in 3 new mums suffering to some degree. If you are one of these women, Kegel8 Mother Nurture feature programmes for stress incontinence, overactive bladder, urge and more to help you to take control and treat the problem quickly and easily.

What’s more, once you’re happy with your results and know that your muscles are strong and healthy, you can maintain your results with the easy-to-use weekly maintenance programme to keep your muscles strong and healthy for life.

Studies have shown that vaginal delivery induces urinary incontinence, especially following your first childbirth experience. The likelihood of a pelvic organ prolapse - this includes cystocele, rectocele, and uterine prolapse - and anal incontinence is increased as a result of vaginal delivery.  

Most often, urinary incontinence appears during pregnancy and remains postpartum. There factors that increase the risk of developing this troublesome condition include: 

  • Urinary incontinence during pregnancy
  • Twin pregnancies
  • Gestational age at birth greater than or equal to 37 weeks
  • Constipation during pregnancy

Stress urinary incontinence is the most common form of incontinence in women following natural childbirth. It is the most common form of incontinence in women after giving birth, followed by mixed incontinence and urge incontinence. Up to 75% of women suffer urinary incontinence during pregnancy and up to 31% of women continue to suffer postpartum. Over 75% of women who reported urinary incontinence three months after birth were still incontinent 12 years later.  

These stats and facts are not what you want to hear, but it's better to know early so you can prevent suffering later.

Kegel8 Mother Nurture features the following programmes:

  1. Pelvic Exercise Routine (Pre-conception)
  2. Full Pelvic Exercise Routine (Pre-conception)
  3. Labour TENS Pain Relief Programme (Labour)
  4. Recovery (Postnatal)
  5. Overactive Bladder/Nocturia (Postnatal)
  6. Stress Incontinence (Postnatal)
  7. Mixed Incontinence (Postnatal)
  8. Weekly Maintenance (Beyond)

Please note that you should not use the Kegel8 Mother Nurture unless advised to do so and under medical supervision if:

  • you are currently pregnant,
  • have a pacemaker fitted
  • or have any form of pelvic cancer,

Technical DataTENS Dual channel: individually isolated circuits. Amplitude: 0 – 80 mA into 500 Ohm load; indication only. Actual mA will tend to be less than indicated due to electrode impedance: at 1000 Ohms load (Electrodes in poor condition) the maximum will be limited to 70 mA, at 1500 Ohms load the maximum will be limited to 65 mA. Type: Constant Current, maximum output voltage 180 Volts +10 / -30 Volts Waveform: Asymmetrical, rectangular bi-phasic with zero DC current. Selectable pulse width: 50mS -300mS [2% accuracy]. Pulse Rate selection: in the continuous mode 2 Hz – 200 Hz [2% accuracy]. Mode: Continuous, Burst or Modulated. Burst mode: Bursts of 9 pulses [200 mS] at 150 Hz, repeating twice every second. Modulation mode: 6-second cycle of concurrent width modulation and pulse repetition rate modulation. Width starting at 200 mS and decreasing exponentially to 100 mS in three seconds and then returning back to 200 mS in the next three seconds. Rate starting at 100 Hz, decreasing exponentially to 65 Hz and then returning to 100 Hz. Time duration of the treatment selectable: 1 minute to 12 hours. Low Battery Indicator: If the battery goes below 6.9 volts +/- 0.2 volts the battery symbol will flash on/off once every second. If the battery voltage is below 6.6 (+/- 0.2) volts the unit will not turn on. Open Electrode Detect: If an open circuit is detected at the output of channel A or B the output current will be reset at zero.
