IT MAKES LABOUR EASIER, TOO
Improving your posture when you’re pregnant will bring other, pretty amazing benefits, too. Studies have found that posture affects how you think about yourself – adopting an upright posture can boost your serotonin levels, which improves your confidence and makes you happier and more relaxed. And while these happy hormones are a plus during pregnancy, they really come into their own during labour. Improving your posture can give your body better symmetry, and that means your baby is more likely to get into a good position ready for birth. And with your body in alignment, and your baby in the right position, your baby will be more able to press down on your cervix and signal to your body that it’s time to get labour started. Result!
