Pelvic Tilt

Pelvic-tilt exercise

This exercise strengthens your lower back and pelvis. It is for use during the first 4 months of pregnancy. After this point, lying on your back is not recommended, because it can cause blood circulation problems for you and your fetus.

  • Lie on your back.
  • Keep your knees relaxed.
  • Tighten your belly and buttocks muscles.
  • At the same time, gently shift your pelvis upward. This should flatten the curve in your back.
  • Hold for 6 seconds and then relax.
  • Gradually increase the number of tilts you do each day, to your comfort level.
