Pregnancy, birth and pelvic floors.

For all those beauties who are joyously continuing the train of human procreation. I’d like to share with you a little something to help your physical journey as new life burgeons within you.

Say hello to the sToop .. a toilet footstool to make everyday in the bathroom easier, healthier, happier .. in pregnancy and beyond.

* Pre birth? Popping your feet up on a sToop for number one or two significantly relieves the pressure your growing bundle is adding to your elastic pelvic floor muscles.

* Post birth? Assists you as you transition past that dreaded first poop point ..

* Suffering from constipation now you and bub(s) are co-habiting?

But how does this beautiful little piece of handmade, recycled timber, looks-fabulous-in-my-home furniture help with all this?

For the uninitiated, it is widely accepted (not least by the two thirds of humanity who naturally squat to poop) that Western toilets do not help us achieve the optimal position for easy and complete defecation. Sitting upright, with your knees often not even at 90 degrees, equates to varying levels of strain that can lead to a gamut of potential health problems. Of which, constipation, haemorrhoids, incontinence,  colon disease, prostate and gynaecological dysfunction name only a few.

The solution? We simply raise our feet by placing them onto the sToop to elevate our knees higher than 90 degrees. This mimics the squat position in a readily achievable manner. Voila, we naturally attain a fuller, easier emptying of our bowel .. pregnant or no .. and there is minimal strain and maximum support to your beloved pelvic floor too.

Happy days!

Why use a sToop to poop?

OK, my lovelies. Brace yourself. The day has finally come when I get to talk toilet and pooping with your feet up!

Don’t rush off in fear now .. this is actually going to be great! I promise. 😉

Right. So. Some of you have been privy to this discussion for many a long year. Some of you are relatively new to such potty talk. ALL of you, happy days, can benefit from what your about to learn as I introduce you to my beautiful and functional little toilet footstool .. the sToop!

What the heck, I hear?

Sorry to the squeamish .. almost there ..

I, like anyone who has ever suffered gut or digestion issues, know the value of popping my feet up to poop. Indeed I gravitated to this solution before I even knew the science! Too much information!, I hear my boy say. 😉

The struggle then became for me to find something I would enjoy seeing in my home while fulfilling this functional task .. drawing a blank on the beautiful card for such a useful item I was compelled to create my “sToop” to benefit us all!
