Relieve your upper back
Your upper back muscles work hard to support the weight of your breasts during pregnancy, and can continue to feel achy if you breastfeed your baby. This exercise will build strength, improve your posture and release tension in your upper back, while also strengthening your biceps and chest muscles to help you lift and carry your baby.
Take your arms out to the sides, then bend your elbows to create a 90-degree angle so your hands are by your ears.
Push your arms up, keeping your elbows soft at the top, making sure you don’t arch your lower back, then return to your starting position.
For more intensity, hold a pair of hand weights or use two small water bottles.
