Kegels, Pelvic Tilt, Breathing, Oh My!

Many women experience low back pain during pregnancy as a result of altered posture and stretched, weakened muscles. Unfortunately this pain doesn’t always dissipate after the arrival of your new bundle of joy and may even start post-partum from carrying your little one around and poor posture while breast feeding. Even if you have been lucky and haven’t experienced any pain, you may benefit from core strengthening exercises to strengthen the muscles that have been affected while you were pregnant. Prior to starting any exercises get clearance from a Doctor to ensure it is safe to begin.
