exercises to open pelvis
mrswelchiswaiting posted:
ok ladies, i'm really trying to avoid a c-section, forceps, or the vacuum and other than just hoping everything goes right, i figured it wouldnt' be a bad idea to try some of those "pelvis opening" stretches that help to make the way out for baby a little smoother. not sure how well it all really works, but it can't help to try! so do any of you know what kinds of stretches these may be? im trying to look online,but its a little confusing. :confused:

The only one I know of is sitting on an exercise ball and rolling your hips.

Squats are good, especially if you can hold them once you're in the down position. There are all kinds of exercises you can do on the exercise ball, like squats, hip rolls, and getting down on all fours with your legs spread a little and your chest resting on the ball. DH always jokes in our birthing classes that that's the position that got us here :wink: :sillygrin:
