Mommy posture

Here is a simple visualization technique to help with your posture and counter the effects of gravity. This is important in maintaining a stable core which will support all the daily activities you need to do, often while holding an ever-growing baby. Your core strength, with good form, needs all the help it can get.
Here is what you do:
Imagine a chord attached to your belly button that stretches up and back to a point in between your shoulder blades. Hooked between these two points, the chord straightens your posture by pulling your abs up and in, and your shoulder blades down and back. This provides the support you need when reaching over to pick up your baby, the stroller….etc.
