Well, really, how much of what the medical community says/preaches is really recent? Maybe with some areas, and "cutting edge techniques". But not with prenatal, labor and birth, or breastfeeding - with those, we're back in the stone ages!

I wonder if you're doing it quite right? That article has a pretty decent description of the 2 "ways" to do squats - one being more effective than the other.

Yup, definitely worth a try!
Although, I read down in the comments on that article something about deep squats in pregnancy being linked to PROM. Not sure how totally valid that is, but I figure it's like any other forms of exercise - if you haven't been doing it before getting pregnant, don't jump all in and start going hard at it, just ease yourself into it and don't push your body too hard.

that's interesting.

with DD, I did a lot of deep squats. I would make myself sit in a squatting position for 5minutes. I read that keeping those muscles limber was very good for labor.

My water did break to start labor... but it happened on my due date.

anyways, I suck at kegals, i'm going to see if I can concentrate on the other technique

If your shins are not perpendicular to the ground, then your glutes will not be engaged as well
