The Gentle Mom-to-Be Workout

Pelvic Tilt

  • Kneel on all fours on a padded surface, making sure that your back is straight and parallel to the floor.
  • Inhale.
  • Then, as you exhale, curve your lower back up and contract your abdominals.
  • Inhale as you lengthen your spine by returning your tailbone to the original position.

Benefits
Pelvic tilts help strengthen abdominal muscles, relieve backache and improve posture.

Precautions
Make sure you keep your back straight -- swaying puts too much pressure on the lower back.
