Here are 2 safe and specific core exercises that you can do at any stage during your pregnancy. They are both particularly effective during the third trimester when you can no longer lie for long periods on your back.
You can perform the exercises 3-4 times a week.
Team these exercises with our complete pregnancy program Fit2BirthMum for a full-body pregnancy workout.
