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.
