Following the birth of her second child, Natalie Bayne had begun to wonder when she would ever find time – between feedings, diaper changes, and preschool pickups – to get her pelvic floor back into shape. “My OB kept telling me to try to work some Kegel exercises into my daily routine,” explains Bayne. “'What routine?' I kept thinking. My life is chaos. I'm so sleep deprived I can barely remember to put on pants some days. But then it hit me. There is one thing I do with almost painful regularity: read the same book to my three-year-old a thousand times a day.”
And that's what got Bayne thinking. What if there was a children's book that was entertaining for kids but was also filled with subtle reminders for moms to get squeezing? So she wrote a funny story and then pitched the idea to her friend and talented artist, Bill Robinson, who most recently completed illustrations for Book One of a new young adult series based on the massive hit Disney movie, Frozen. Bill loved the idea and The Kegel Bear was born.
Bayne launched a successful Kickstarter campaign this past Labor Day (*wink*) to fund the printing of the 32-page, full color, hardcover book and has begun shipping copies all over the world. “While the concept might sound a bit unconventional,” says Bayne, “it's actually a very practical gift. The kids get a funny story about a bear, while moms will get that all-important reminder to SQUEEZE!”
‘The Kegel Bear’ is available now. For more information, visit the book’s official website: http://www.thekegelbear.com.
