Pregnancy stretches — pregnant woman practicing torso rotation
Previous Next 7 of 7

To stretch the muscles in your back and upper torso, try the torso rotation. Sit on the floor with your legs crossed. Hold your right foot with your left hand. Then move your left hand behind you, slowly twist your upper body to the right. Hold for several seconds, then return to the starting position. Switch hands and repeat on the other side. Gradually work up to 10 repetitions on both sides.

If you're uncomfortable sitting on the floor, try sitting on a mat or towel.
