Pregnancy Stretches to Increase Mobility and Reduce Pain
Are you on your pregnancy journey and feeling a little stiff and sore? I have some pregnancy stretches to increase mobility and reduce pain.
Pregnancy can be hard on the body for many women as there are so many physiological changes happening to your body on a daily basis.
A good stretching and mobility sequence, especially when it is done daily, can help alleviate pain during pregnancy and improve your range of motion. Of course, regular pregnancy massages can also help you with your pain and mobility but the stretching routine is great for in between appointments!
You know those times when you feel stuck and you can’t move properly or sideways? That is what I mean by range of motion. So having a good range of motion and relaxed muscles can help you have a smoother and more comfortable pregnancy.
Please remember you also have to be very careful about over-doing it! The hormone relaxin increases during pregnancy which can allow you to over-stretch and can cause injury. So go gently at all times.
You are the one who knows your body best, so trust yourself when doing any stretches or exercise and don’t push past your limits.
I have put two videos below for you to get started with stretching when pregnant to incorporate into your daily routine. These will help you reduce pain, increase your mobility and and help your body, mind and soul in the best way possible.
I hope these daily pregnancy stretches to increase mobility and reduce pain have been useful to you! If you have any questions at all or want to let me know how you found the routines, please get in touch.
