As a mother of three, Kirsten King of Fluidform understands the incredible process our bodies undergo through each stage of pregnancy.
As described by King, your spine adjusts to allow for the baby to grow and your body releases hormones to relax the pelvis. Your bump grows bigger, shifting your center of gravity, and your pelvis tilts, increasing the curve in your lower spine. Your feet become flat and knees hyperextended.
According to King, functional movement is the safest and most effective form of exercise for prenatal mothers. Fluidform focuses on realigning your posture, and maintaining abdominal and pelvic floor strength to support your entire pregnancy and childbirth. Fluidform is designed to strengthen your glutes, quads and arms to support your postnatal journey as you lift, carry and nurse your baby. Stretching, opening and lengthening your muscles and joints will help you to feel energized, strong and stable. It is important to love and nurture your growing body everyday, even when it feels difficult.
Kirsten's specialized Prenatal and Postnatal programs are designed to move with you, from preconception through to postnatal recovery and beyond. Follow her prenatal workout to help you build and maintain your strength as your body prepares for birth.*
Remember, this changing process is different for everyone! It is important to listen to your body, respond to the changes through each trimester and move your body to feel strong, happy and healthy.
