Mobility exercises

Once you feel ready and recovered enough to start some gentle stretches, these can be helpful in temporarily relieving any muscular aches and pains sustained from prolonged sitting and feeding, and are also a good way of checking in with your new postpartum body and getting used to movement once again. Don’t overdo it; think gentle and slow movement of the spine, shoulders and lower legs. It’s less about flexibility, more about mobility.   

Examples of mobility exercises: 

Standing spinal roll-downs 

Standing thoracic twists 

Cat-cows on all fours
