Flexibility Training During Pregnancy

Hello, hello!

I finally have a few spare minutes to get back on the ‘ol blog train! It’s been super busy with visitors and traveling back and forth to the NICU each day.

Thankfully, the little one is doing great and gaining weight so she should be home in the next couple of weeks. I can’t wait!!

This is my favorite picture so far of Charlotte, she loves bath time obviously! I can’t look at this picture and not smile (or laugh). Ha!

Onto stretching…..and boy oh boy, I’d say these stretches feel just as amazing during pregnancy as they do afterwards!

Remember during pregnancy it’s important not to push the stretches too much as our ligaments and joints are more lax due to the hormone relaxin getting us prepped for giving birth. The stretch should be pushed to very mild discomfort and always stop if anything is painful!

Below are video links to the Stretches listed above!

Pec Doorway Stretch

Standing Hip Flexor Stretch

Piriformis Stretch

QL Stretch

Calf Stretch

Β Are there any Stretches you’d add to the list- Pre/Post Partum?

Do you Stretch daily?
