Preparing your body for birth

According to the experts, exercising before your baby is born can change your experience when giving birth. There are some exercises that could loosen up your hips to ease up the delivery, and reduce your stress or anxiety, things that most expectant women experience before delivery. These exercises should be done softly, slowly, and as good as you could do them.

Here’s a list of exercises to loosen up your hips and strengthen your pelvic muscles in order to get ready for birth:

• The Turkish position: sit with your legs crossed, while you squeeze in your vagina and anus for 10 to 15 seconds and then release. Repeat this exercise several times most days of the week to see results
• The angry cat position: place your palms and knees on the floor with your knees at the width of your shoulders. Arch your back, breathe and go down/relax. Repeat this exercise several times most days of the week to see results
• The tailor position: sit with your back straight and place the soles of your feet together. Push your knees down and keep them like that for a few seconds

Even though no one can guarantee you’ll have a good delivery experience, doing these exercises can upper your chances to do well. Experts recommend doing them moderately in order to prepare the body and ease the delivery.
