Help Baby Get Into Position – Mommy Moves
Kicking off our new Mommy Moves series with an exercise for pregnant moms that can help baby get into position for birth. This exercise is great for releasing the psoas muscle which can get super tight (thanks in large part to all of the sitting we do). Releasing the psoas can help baby descend and get into an optimal position for birth.
If you have any requests of issues or body parts that you’d like us to address in an upcoming Mommy Moves feature, please email us.
