Why It's Important to do the Tailor Sitting Pregnancy Stretch

This is an exercise that strengthens and stretches muscles in your back, thighs, and pelvis during pregnancy. It also helps improve your posture and keeps your pelvic joints flexible. The Tailor Sitting stretch improves blood flow to your lower body and eases delivery when the time comes.

Instructions for doing The Tailor Sitting pregnancy stretch:

• Sit on the floor with your back straight.
• Put your legs in a "butterfly position" (the bottoms of your feet together and your knees dropped comfortably).
• Press both knees gently toward the floor using your elbows until you feel a stretch in your inner thighs. Don't bounce.
• Hold the position for 10 or 15 seconds nd repeat the stretch five or 10 times.
Note:  Always practice your deep breathing for all exercises and stretches.
