1st Trimester

Prepare, prevent, and kick butt right out of the gates.

Your blood volume has increased, your body is making the hormone relaxin to help with joint flexibility for birth, you might be feeling old injuries or new muscle soreness, aaaand you might be feeling a little nervous. Totally normal and unique to the 1st trimester! Each stage requires different approaches to exercise and mindfulness—this one's for the early days.

Perfect for everyone—it’s a fundamental step and a daily practice.

Equipment: mat (optional)

Diaphragmatic Breathing is one of the first things I teach my patients. Perfect for everyone—it’s a fundamental step and a daily practice. This can be helpful for anyone, especially those with breathing that isn’t coordinated to the pelvic floor (paradoxical breathers). It can also be helpful for those just starting out with pelvic floor PT and needing a baseline.
