Great Steps to Recover Safely & Gently After Birth – Part 3
- Contract and relax your abdominal muscles, breathing deeply in and out – remember to pull your stomach in when you breathe out.
- Repeat the exercise above, this time with gentle pelvic tilts. As you contract your stomach muscles, gently tilt the pelvic bones on either side of your navel towards your upper body and hold there for the count of five. This should help alleviate any backache, as well as tone your stomach muscles.
