The Benefits of Walking for Pregnant and New Moms

Straighten Up And Walk Right

  • No slumping, please!
  • Keep your head up. Lifting from the chin makes it easier. Focusing on the horizon helps, too.
  • Push your shoulders back. Imagine you're cracking a nut between your shoulder blades, then relax your shoulders.
  • Tuck in your abs and tip your pelvis slightly forward (pregnant walkers may not be able to do this).
  • Bend your arms to a 90-degree angle.
