When should I see a physical therapist during pregnancy?

1. Child’s pose — This yoga pose helps lengthen pelvic floor muscles and ease discomfort.Kneel down and sit on your heels. Then lean forward slowly and walk your arms out long in front of you. Breathe deeply. You also can rest your elbows on the ground in front of you with your hands supporting your head. As your belly grows, you may need to spread your knees farther apart to create space. If it’s uncomfortable to sit your backside on your heels, you can sit up higher.Take care to not raise your hips above your heart. Talk to your physical therapist for other guidelines specific to you.

2. Deep squat ----Deep squats help relax and lengthen the pelvic floor muscles and stretch the perineum.Stand with your legs wider than hip width. Slowly squat down as far as you can go with your hands pressed together in front of you.Your physical therapist can talk with you about how often and how many deep squats you should do.

3. Perineal bulges---- This trains you to push during delivery without holding your breath. Holding your breath while pushing is call Valsalva. Valsalva can decrease the rate of blood flow back to the heart, lower maternal blood pressure, decrease maternal blood oxygen and blood flow to the placenta, and increase the risk for injury. It also can increase fetal head compression and fetal distress.Perineal bulges should only be practiced in the last three weeks of pregnancy. Don’t practice them often because it can place excessive pressure on your pelvic floor structures.
