Prenatal Hip Opener – Mommy Moves
Prenatal Hip Opener
This month’s Mommy Moves exercise for pregnant mamas is not only a great prenatal hip opener – it’s also fantastic for relieving lower body discomfort that many women experience during pregnancy. Hard to beat a multi-tasking move like this one!

November Prenatal Mommy Move: Prenatal Hip Opener
Place your hands on a chair/stool in front of you and push your hips back. Feet wide and spine neutral (don’t round your back). Slowly shift your hips to one side. Pause then slowly shift to the other side. Repeat for 1 minute. (Feel free to play around with the width of your feet to see what feels good for you).
