Does it feel like your posture has become hunched over during pregnancy or after having kids? You aren’t alone. Here are a few tips to keep you working towards improving your posture and eliminating the aches and pains tends to cause.
Our bodies go through a LOT of changes during pregnancy and postpartum. If you didn’t start off with good posture, prior to pregnancy, the gravitational changes and hormonal influences on your body are about to add to the challenge. Even if you did start with amazing posture, you may still have some work to do to re-balance your muscles and bring you back into the alignment that best supports you. Poor posture can lead to lower back pain, shoulder tension, neck strain, faster fatigue, and make you more prone to pregnancy related injuries like diastasis recti and pelvic floor dysfunction.
