Prenatal Abdominal Exercises

The Abdominal Pull
This can be done anywhere and at any time. It's advisable to start by doing it sitting in an upright chair with your shoulders relaxed and back straight. Put your hands around your belly below your navel. Breathe in slowly and pull in your abdominal muscles for two seconds and then release; repeat 10 times. Take a short break, then start again. Once you've mastered this, move on to the next level. In the same position, pull in you muscles and release quickly, almost every second. Breathe properly and do not hold your breath.
