Deep Core Breathing
Connecting to your deep core is important throughout pregnancy and postpartum recovery. The deep core is made up of 4 muscles that help you to find stability and containment in the core. Learning to connect to these muscles may require a few visits with a pelvic health physiotherapist (highly recommended).
This video will show you basic deep core breathing technique.
Start gently, and work your way up to longer holds.
These can be done sitting up, or lying on your back or side. You may want to start lying down and work your way up to doing them sitting up depending on how functional your deep core muscles are.
As I said in the clip, please make sure to book an appointment with a pelvic floor physiotherapist to check for any prolapse, diastasis recti and other core dysfunction conditions that you may endure throughout pregnancy and childbirth.
