One thing to keep in mind is that the muscles of your uterus are extremely strong and thick, and unless you've have a surgery that may have caused an area of weakness, there's no need to be concerned about uterine wall strength.

On the other hand, exercises that strengthen your abdominal wall (such as the one's at the link pasted below) are great for providing a support system for your abdominal organs, and during pregnancy helps to prevent low back strain from the weight of a growing baby.

I was reading in a book, "Inconceivable" (don't recall the page) about either foods or herbs or teas that aid in strengthening the uterus. I don't think I phrased the question very well but I thought since there are muscles there, then maybe in addition to nutrition there is something physical I could do too. I may have misunderstood what I read.
Thank you Cathy

You aren't able voluntarily contract the muscles of the uterine wall, so there isn't any exercise that'll help strengthen them. Is there a reason that you're concerned about the strength of your uterine wall?

Hello and welcome to BabyFit!

I am honestly not aware of exercises to strengthen the uterine wall, itself. But core exercises strengthen you abdomen wich supports your uterus.

Here is our demos of Core Exercises

I will ask around to see if there is something that directly strengthens the uterine wall.
