3 Exercises that will help you birth in the position you choose

Are you hoping to birth in a squatting position?  On your side?  On all fours?  Here are 3 exercises that will give you the strength and flexibility you'll need when your baby is ready to be born.

Squatting lengthens and strengthens the muscles needed to birth in a squatting, semi-squatting, hands and knees or even standing position.

Lunges increase gluteal and thigh strength which will come in handy if you decide to push in a side-lying or squatting position.

Hands and knees exercises (Ex. Cat/Cow, Super Mom) will give you the strength and stamina needed if you spend a prolonged period of time in this position during labour.
