The Gentle Mom-to-Be Workout

Arm Stretch

  • Sit with legs crossed, back straight.
  • Reach for the ceiling with one arm, then the other.
  • Feel the stretch in your arms and the sides of your trunk.
  • Repeat.

Arm stretches ease upper backache, increase lung capacity, reduce hand swelling and relieve pressure on the nerves and blood vessels in the arms.
