Being aware of your posture and modifying it during pregnancy can help protect your spine, decrease back pain and puts you in good practice for when you have a small precious wriggly and sometimes slippery child to hold and feed.
5 easy things you can do:
1. Neutral pelvis - as your centre of gravity has shifted forward you will have more lordosis (curve in your lower back), it’s important to gently contract your lower tummy muscles to tuck the pelvis under (small movement). Do this in all positions especially in sitting, but once you have the neutral position make sure you have a small cushion in the small of your back. This will be especially helpful when breastfeeding starts. The neutral pelvis position also make it easier for your Pelvic Floor muscles to contract.
