Connecting to and strengthening your core early postpartum is so important for your healing and recovery. You shouldn’t be doing super intense core work, but gentle exercises aimed at reconnecting the mind and the body and slowly starting to strengthen those muscles are just what you need. Today’s exercises meet both of these points!
Perform each exercise for 30-45 seconds for 4-6 rounds. Don’t go quickly, especially if you are still very early postpartum. Take your time to make sure your body is doing exactly what your mind is telling it. Your breath should match up with your effort.
