15 SEATED MEDITATION
Roll up to a cross-legged seat, and open your arms so they are parallel to the floor, palms facing up. Firm your triceps, then begin to flip your palms, downward then up, creating a rhythm. Do this for at least 2 minutes, increasing the length of this exercise by 30-second intervals as you build strength. It should feel challenging to keep your arms parallel to the ground; this exercise is designed to help you mentally prepare for labor. Once you’re finished, rest your hands on your thighs.
