Lets Talk Posture...
Your posture says a lot about your personality. It also says a lot about how your joints and muscles are working.
Imagine a strong, powerful, confident person standing in front of you. What kind of posture does that person have? Undoubtedly, the person in front of you is standing tall with an open chest and a head held high. It's a person who looks ready to take on the world.
How you look and feel is directly related to your posture. Despite the importance of having good posture, most of us don't do anything to improve it. We go about our lives with hunched backs and imbalanced hips, and deal with pain because we think it's normal.
Pregnancy may change the shape and behaviour of your back. Your lower back may flatten slightly, or if you had an arched lower back before pregnancy, it may arch further.
The flattening of your back, and the hormonal changes that happen in pregnancy, can cause the joints of your back and pelvis to move more. The muscles of your back, tummy and pelvic floor are designed to move and support the joints of your back and pelvis. But as your uterus (womb) grows, it can become harder for them to do their job, and this can cause irritation and pain.
