Diaphragmatic Breathing Exercises strengthen your core and pelvic floor and are my go to when brushing my teeth, waiting for my face mask to dry, or going for a long drive. This 5 minute video will show you a quick routine to practice your breathing, core engagement, and kegels.
Diaphragmatic Breathing exercises are helpful to do during pregnancy to remind your transverse abdominals to engage and your pelvic floor to work with your core. Diaphragmatic breathing is also one of the first exercises you can do postpartum to help your core and pelvic floor muscles work together again. Engaging your transverse abdominals helps to close any diastasis recti and working pelvic floor contractions strengthen your pelvic floor to decrease any prolapse that may have developed from pregnancy and birth.
FYI - This video was recorded when I was 5 weeks pregnant so you'll get an insiders view on how things are going during my first trimester.
*Women with stronger cores tend to show later in pregnancy and these exercises assist in reducing lower back pain due to your growing baby belly.
