Pregnancy Exercises and Stretches

By August 16, 2022August 17th, 2022No Comments

During pregnancy, it is very important to tone and gently stretch the muscles and prepare for labor and delivery. Drs. Quintin and Katie Sleigh of Sleigh Family Chiropractic in Arlington Heights customize exercises and stretches for patients that come into the office depending on their condition.

Pregnancy Exercises: Stretches

Daily stretching will help your womb and pelvis be more aligned for the baby. In addition, these balancing activities may make your childbirth easier.

These daily exercises promote anterior positioning of your child, which in turn is the best and most comfortable position for the baby and for you!

These activities will not make a head down baby turn back to breech nor will they make an anterior baby turn posterior.

Start your daily pregnancy exercises early in your pregnancy. Do not wait until late pregnancy to “see” if the baby ends up in a “malposition” before beginning.

These activities can be done at any time, even before pregnancy! Why wait when balance enhances physiology?
