Of course your back aches—you’re pregnant! Or you’re postpartum and carrying a newborn more than you even carry your own purse. During pregnancy, your lower back is stressed as your baby grows and your uterus enlarges. By keeping the muscles and ligaments around your back strong and mobile, you boost your back support and work toward a pain-free pregnancy and recovery. When I created my Expecting More program, I specifically wanted to help women keep their backs strong. Use these three exercises to prepare and persevere through all the changes your back will endure during pregnancy and beyond birth. Say goodbye to back ache!
