5 stretches for tailbone pain during pregnancy

Tailbone pain is one of the most common aches that pregnant women experience. In general, relaxin and other hormones are to blame. They cause relaxation and stretching of your pelvic floor, which also moves your coccyx. … Often, what feels like lower back pain and hip pain during pregnancy is actually tailbone pain. Unfortunately there is no cure however stretching can help. (Healthline)

The following 5 stretches are the ones I recommend and  use with my clients.

  1. Cat Cow
  2. Standing Cat Cow
  3. Childs pose
  4. Downward dog
  5. Bridge

Please see how to perform the Bridge and if you would like the link for the others please put your details in our contact page.

This gentle stretch strengthens your hip flexor muscles. It works on your abdominal muscles, lower back muscles, and glutes. It also relieves you of lower back and hip pains.

Lie on your back with feet flat and knees bent. Keep your hands beneath your back with palms facing downward.
Move your feet so that they are a hip width apart from each other. Lift up your pelvis by pressing your lower back against the floor. Hold the pose for a minute and breathe in.
Now release the pose by exhaling. Roll your spine back to the ground slowly.
Repeat ten times.
