Pregnancy Related Injuries
Pregnancy and childbirth bring great joy, but they can also be hard on your body. Doing simple exercises and forming healthy habits can help you cope with many of the changes to your body. It can also help reduce injuries and problems in the future. When you are pregnant, your body changes. Your muscles stretch, especially those in your abdomen and your pelvic floor. Also, your ligaments soften. Ligaments connect bone to bone and provide vital support for your joints. To help look after your body during pregnancy, and to recover after childbirth, simple exercises can be used to help you strengthen these muscles.
