This is a full body workout that encourages pelvis stability while safely staying away from moves that make it worse (see bullet points below). Pelvic pain can be tricky to address on your own as there are so many things that impact pelvic mechanics, pelvic floor health, and trauma that occurred during delivery. If you are having pelvic pain that is not going away with gentle exercise, stretching, or our postnatal exercise program, please follow up with a women’s health physical or physiotherapist. Their job is to assess the cause of your pain and help you get back to life faster and teach you how to take care yourself.
Additionally, some women find it feels better to have compression through the pelvis and use a support belt.
If you have pelvic pain or pelvis instability after having a baby it is best to avoid certain moves and exercises. You should avoid the following:
-abductions (where the leg moves away from the body)
-uneven leg distribution, such as side squats
-moves where the feet are further than hip width apart
-or any move that causes pain or distributing the pelvis area unevenly, such as crossing the legs
