Pelvic tilt (Preparing your body for labor)
Why do it?
This exercise strengthens the muscles in your abdomen, helps relieve backache during pregnancy and labor, and may help make for an easier delivery. Pelvic tilts can also improve the flexibility of your back and help prevent back pain.
How to do it
Get down on your hands and knees with your head in line with your back. Tilt your hips forward and pull in your abdomen, rounding your back slightly. Hold the position for several seconds, then relax your abdomen and back, keeping your back relatively flat. Don’t let your back sag. Repeat three to five times, working up to 10 repetitions.
You can also do pelvic tilts while standing up. Stand up straight with your back against a wall and push the small of your back against the wall. Or simply stand up straight and rock your pelvis back and forth.
