Posture Focus: Holding Your Kids (Front Carry)

You likely hold your kids for HOURS on end (and while doing a million other things) so why not make it a part of your recovery routine? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is a front-carry hold (side carry is here!). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Things to look out for:


✅ Hold your kid higher up, roll your shoulders back and use your arm strength to hold them. (Bonus – they will likely eat your face. 😂) ✅ Think of aligning your ear, shoulder, hip, knees and ankles in one straight line. ✅ Stack your hips under your ribs so you can lightly engage your core and protect your lower back. You might have to soften your knees to do this, and that’s ok. Bent knees are ok! ✅ Bring your chin back, thinking of lengthening the back of your neck. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Being conscious of your everyday movements goes a long way toward helping you heal diastasis and pelvic floor issues. You’ve got this mama! 👊🏻👊🏼👊🏽👊🏾👊🏿
