Just because you've got a bun in the over doesn't mean you need to give up on working out! Abdominal exercises are one of the most important ways to exercise while pregnant. This lesson from Oh Baby! Fitness demonstrates a simple stability ball sit-up for pregnant women. You’ll also learn tips for positioning your body in a way that's safe and comfortable.
Labor needn't be scary if you practice and prepare. This lesson from Oh Baby! Fitness can help women get ready for childbirth by teaching coordinated breathing and pushing. Learn which muscles to tense and which to relax when pushing a child during labor - how to engage the abdominals and relax the pelvic floor (push with your gut, not with your butt!). This video also includes a breathing exercise to practice controlling the right muscles.
The joys of pregnancy are many, but incontinence is not one of them. Unfortunately, nearly 60% of women experience postpartum incontinence—but you don’t have to! Learn how to prevent this unfortunate side effect of pregnancy with kegels. In this lesson from Oh Baby Fitness, learn in what positions pregnant women can alleviate pressure on the pelvic floor and perform kegels safely: the side lying position for slow “elevators,” or the table top position for “quick flicks.”
Lose that baby fat with the simple post-pregnancy abdominal exercise known as hollowing, in which you pull the belly button back toward the spine. Oh Baby! Fitness teaches you beginning and advanced versions of the exercise, and offers tips on breathing and positioning. Hollowing is safe to begin just six weeks after giving birth, so it is a great way to start getting back into shape.
Maintaing the correct pregnancy posture is tricky- explanations are filled with catchphrases that aren't necessarily clear. Oh Baby! Fitness demonstrates how to engage the interior and lower abdominal muscles to pull the baby up and in, or hug it 'high and tight', to maintain the right posture and work your transverse abdominis muscle. See a real-life example that explains the lingo.
Are you suffering from back pain as a result of pregnancy? Oh Baby! Fitness teaches you a basic yoga exercise that can help to relieve some of that pain. By performing a pelvic tilt that moves between the cat and cow yoga poses, you can allow the baby to drop away from your lower back and provide some release from your discomfort. This exercise is simple and can be a great help for both fitness and physical well being.
