4th Trimester

Wait… there’s a fourth trimester?! There sure is and I highly recommend learning about it DURING your pregnancy versus waiting until after your baby has arrived. The fourth trimester includes the 12 weeks after giving birth to your precious little one.


Exercise Guidelines

  • Focus on resting and gentle posture and mobility the first 1-2 weeks

  • Start short, daily 5-10 minute walks around week 2

  • Introduce squats, lunges and bridging in line with daily movements around week 2

 

To-Do List

✔️Work on 360° breathing and gentle movement

✔️Once your incision is healed, start working on scar mobility

✔️Continue taking prenatal and staying hydrated

✔️Enjoy this special time with your little one

✔️Prioritize healing and taking care of yourself
