Just breathe, Mama…
Sit in a chair and slightly lean forward, which will help you to connect with the muscles of your pelvic floor. Place your hands on the sides of your ribcage, just above your pelvis. As you inhale, expand your lungs to press out against your hands. Focus on keeping your shoulders relaxed and feel the lungs filling deep within your torso. Exhale through slightly open lips and pull up the muscles of your pelvic floor as you blow the air out. Imagine the top of a tissue box under your hips from which you are slowly pulling a tissue. The visual should help for you to make better sense of this Kegel exercise. Repeat 10 times or as directed by your caregiver. Not only are your strengthening the muscles that support your internal organs, but you might find yourself a little more relaxed, too, when you’re done!

A safe, effective exercise program conducted throughout your pregnancy can play an important role in maintaining your health and well-being before, during and after giving birth. In January 2012, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) released new recommendations for exercise and pregnancy that encourage all healthy, pregnant women to exercise moderately for at least 30 minutes on most, if not all days of the week. ACOG further states that a healthy woman with a normal pregnancy may continue her regular pre-pregnancy program or if sedentary begin a new program.
- Private sessions to focus on your needs

Exercising while pregnant can help to alleviate some of the common discomforts of pregnancy, like swelling, low back pain, and sleeplessness. We work together to strengthen and stretch the parts of the body affected by pregnancy and childbirth. With your caregiver’s permission, it is safe for you to exercise well into your third trimester. New Mamas also appreciate the safety and focus of our program to help transition back into their regular fitness routine. You are always invited to bring your newborn to your sessions, whether we incorporate the peanut into your training or not.
See you soon, Mama! — Jessica
