Third Trimester: 27-40 weeks (50 minutes)
This comprehensive prenatal workout is designed for women in their 3rd Trimester of pregnancy, between 27 – 40 weeks. The exercise program is designed to increase comfort in this final stage of pregnancy, to manage postural changes and to release the pelvic floor in preparation for delivery. In order to minimize the risk of developing “mummy tummy” aka diastasis recti (overstretched abdominal connective tissue), there are no plank or “hands and knees” positions during this later stage of pregnancy when the baby is largest. Here’s an explanation of diastasis recti with Dr. Sinead Dufour.
Suggested equipment: mat, 1-3 lb. hand weights, large stability ball, pillow, yoga block or stairs
