Pregnant women need to be in top shape.
Delivering a new life into this world requires a
great deal of physical and emotional strength.
To go through labor and delivery swiftly, a
strong core is especially useful which is why
pregnant women should also do core exercises.
Core exercises, when executed properly, are
safe and beneficial for pregnant women. If you
are welcoming a little one soon, here are two
core exercises for pregnancy that you should
Lie comfortably on your back. Stretch out your
feet and slightly bend your knees. Inhale
through your nose as you slowly raise your
arms toward the ceiling. Calmly exhale through
your mouth as you bring your arms over your
head. Next, inhale again while you curl your
head and shoulders from the floor. Remember
to keep your head between your arms.
Continue to roll up with your legs bending as
you come up. When you reach the top,
straighten your legs and reach forward. Keep
your head between your arms as you do. When
you begin to roll down, slowly inhale through
your nose. Exhale as you go back to starting
position. Repeat this exercise for five times.
Again, lie comfortably on your back and
position your feet flat on the floor. Put your
hands to your sides with your palms down.
Keep your hips still as you raise your right leg
up to a 90-degree angle. Continue to inhale and
exhale as you do this. Next, raise your left leg
up the same level as your right leg. You should
look like you’re sitting on a chair. Slowly lower
your right leg followed by your left. Repeat this
exercise two more times.
By doing these two core exercises for
pregnancy daily, you are improving your
chances for a safe and smooth delivery.
