Your Pregnancy - - Exercise -

In a stand­ing pose al­ways be aware of what it is that grounds you – your legs. Let your strength and bal­ance come from your feet, ankles and leg muscles. Let your up­per torso and arms feel light while they reach up­wards. Al­ways tighten your quad muscles to help pro­tect your lower back and knees. Tuck your tail­bone in ever so slightly. Re­mem­ber your lower back is par­tic­u­larly vul­ner­a­ble in preg­nancy and needs a lot of care.
