Top 5 Stretches to Ease Your Pregnancy

We are often asked what are the best pregnancy stretches to be doing. Since we take care of so many expectant moms we thought we would put together a short video to show the top 5 pregnancy stretches that we recommend. Please check out our video where Ottawa prenatal Chiropractor Dr Pauline So shows in more detail these exercises for pregnant moms. We recommend these pregnancy stretches only for moms who have baby in non-breech position. If you are past 32 weeks and baby is breech please see our other breech baby exercise video and breech baby blog post. Do not follow these pregnancy stretches if your baby is breech and you are past 32 weeks!
