Maintaining a healthy posture during pregnancy is important to help keep mama and baby healthy. Proper posture can decrease neck, mid-back, low back, pelvic, and feet pain. These guidelines will help you maintain a healthy posture throughout your pregnancy when standing, sitting and lying down.
Lying on your side is a recommended position to take off tension from the lower back. During the third trimester, it is not recommended for pregnant women to lie on their back for long periods of time. The weight of the baby can press on large blood vessels and reduce blood flow to the placenta and baby.
Good posture can make you look and feel better, as well as help you avoid some of the discomforts that can occur later in pregnancy.
