At The Pregnancy Centre this month we show how an investment in time now, can save so much time and energy later. We discuss some ways to improve your posture, together with some exercises that can be incorporated into every day chores and a tool box of breathing and relaxation tips you can use during labour and for life. Remember when you begin, if any of the exercises don’t work quite the way you thought just stop, think, refocus and try again. You’ll be pleased you did - it’s always worth the wait!
