Tailor sitting Why do it

Tailor sitting improves your posture and strengthens and stretches the muscles in your back, thighs and pelvis. It can help keep your pelvic joints flexible, improve blood flow to your lower body and may make for an easier delivery.

How to do it

Sit on the floor with your back straight and bring the bottoms of your feet together, your heels in toward your groin area. Let your knees drop comfortably out to the side so that you feel a stretch in your inner thighs. Don't bounce your knees up and down.

This exercise isn't as hard as it sounds. Pregnancy tends to make your joints more flexible. But if it's too hard for you, try sitting against a wall to support your back, putting cushions under each thigh or just sitting with your legs crossed and changing the front leg from time to time. Keep your back straight.
