I get asked ALL THE TIME about safe exercises to perform during pregnancy. Many women who were active pre-pregnancy are unsure what exercises they should or shouldn’t be doing.
Sometimes during pregnancy you really don’t feel like exercising, but just doing a little every day can make all the difference. Your pelvis needs a little extra care during pregnancy so be sure to look after it! Doing a little gentle exercise every day will help to prevent pelvic girdle pain and other painful pregnancy complaints.
I have compiled a sheet of 3 very easy safe exercises to keep your pelvis stable and aligned during this time. Whilst I would encourage all pregnant women to stay active during pregnancy and perform these exercises; there really is no substitute for getting a professional assessment and treatment if you are suffering during your pregnancy. We are highly trained and very experienced at looking after mums-to-be, so you know you are in safe hands.
This is your downloadable pregnancy exercise sheet. Please exercise safely and responsibly when pregnant. Where possible please support yourself using a chair or wall.
If you feel severe pain with any of the exercises please stop and consult your chiropractor.
If you are pregnant and suffering, please consider getting some professional help. My blog post about pain in pregnancy HERE will explain why pain during pregnancy occurs and what to do about it. We can be contacted on 01330 824040 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
