The changes that occur in our body during pregnancy can really leave us feeling a bit unsupported around the low back and hips. All that weight of baby pulling us forward, shifting our centre of gravity. Not to mention the hormones our body creates to help create space in our pelvis to birth our little one when the time comes.

We really want to take some time during pregnancy to focus on building strength and support around our pelvis so we reduce the amount of pressure on our hips, pelvic floor and abdominal muscles.

This standing sequence is perfect whether you’re pregnant, newly postpartum and just feeling weak in the legs and hips. I love love love these exercises, the hip hinge is one of my favorite exercises and is perfect for waking up the foot, leg and hip muscles so you feel much stronger and more supported from the bottom up.
