Happy Holidays from the entire Bwom team! ??? "Wow, the holiday season is flying by." You may or may not like the holiday season, but undoubtedly we consider it a marked anniversary that makes us reflect on the year and helps us decide how we want to start the next next one. It is also time to celebrate, to thank, and to congratulate. In this post we want to wish you a wonderful end of your year, now matter how you celebrate it. :)

The Hypopressive exercise, also known as Hypopressive Abdominal Gymnastics, is a relatively recent technique used to help in exercising the pelvic floor and toning the abdomen. The reason Hypopressives are called Abdominal Hypopressive Gymnastics is due to the fact that the workout can be considered a sport in itself. (And it’s quick too! No more working out at the gym for 2 or more hours at a time… if you don’t want to that is.)

Bwom App

Having launched the new app Bwom, we could not be more excited and proud. After months of work, we have created a powerful tool to help you take care of the pelvic floor. We designed this program by listening to our clients and by responding to the real needs of women in matters of their intimate health. Since the launch of the first version of Bwom, we have talked with more than 30 different active users. Through their feedback, we noticed trends in the experiences of our users. This included positive feedback as well as what we could do, as an app, to improve. We adjusted our app to help address any problems, needs, and expectations our users have had. We want to thank all of the women who have trusted Bwom and have given us feedback to improve. With your help we want to help improve the quality of life for all women.

So What Changed in the new App?

Start the conversation about the pelvic floor By Shannon Trudeaux We as an organization want to start the conversation. To open a topic that can at times be seen as controversial and sometimes even taboo. This topic is something that people will giggle about if you mention because it is a topic so personal... hardly anyone will risk saying it out loud. This topic is (Dun Dun DUUUUUNN!) The Pelvic Floor

Original Content by Olatz Zeberio, Transposed by Shannon Trudeaux The muscles of the pelvic floor undergo changes throughout the course of a woman's life such as pregnancy and menopause. And in some cases the pelvic floor is weakened through these experienced changes. In others it simply requires more attention. However there are 5 main factors that damage the pelvic floor.  The pelvic floor is damaged when it receives excessive pressure, stress or injuries in any of the structures of the pelvic area. Taking care of the pelvic area is important for preventing problems like Urinary Incontinence (urine leakage) and improving your intimate health. For this reason it is important to know the five main factors that can harm your pelvic floor:

The Pelvic Floor Area

Most of you would probably better recognize the term just as the pelvic floor; however, the pelvic floor area encompasses more structures within your body than just the pelvic floor muscles. Thus, it is important to be able to identify the different pelvic areas in your body.

Bwom and Women's Health

Hello, I’m Veronica, the founder of Bwom. Together with my team, we have developed Bwom, a mobile application designed by women for women, to help better the intimate health of individuals like you worldwide. Centered on the pelvic floor, this application works to personalize your exercises in order to fit your needs for all stages of life.  The idea to create the Bwom app started when I (at the time in my 30’s) realized that I had never really consciously exercised my pelvic floor. I came to realize just how important it is for women to exercise and know about the state of their pelvic floor. Because, just like any other muscle, you need to exercise it as a preventative measure against possible health problems. And just like in physical therapy, in order to fix preexisting problems, education about the problem and exercising the weakened muscle is oftentimes the solution to strengthen and re-balance the body.
