Strengthen Your Pelvic Floor – Mommy Moves
This month’s postpartum Mommy Moves exercise is a great squat preparation exercise to learn how to properly use your glutes instead of your quads. Strong glutes are essential to strengthen your pelvic floor after pregnancy. No matter how you delivered your baby, your pelvic floor needs some TLC after pregnancy.
Mommy Moves is a new monthly series that will highlight a great prenatal and postpartum exercise for you to try. If you have any requests of issues or body parts that you’d like us to address, please email us.
