HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PERFORM TVA BREATHING & PELVIC FLOOR EXERCISES?
TVA Breathing & Pelvic Floor Exercises are recommended to be performed daily.
HOW TO PERFORM TVA BREATHING: As you inhale expand the belly, filling the lungs with air, allowing the ribcage to expand. When you take a breath in, you have to think of your diaphragm as lowering down. It is a dome-shaped muscle and during inhalation, it flattens towards the bottom of your lungs as the lungs expand and your rib basket (thorax) widens.
Exhale breathing of your air out, and hugging baby in and squeeze and lift the muscles of the pelvic floor. When you breathe out, the diaphragm pulls up towards the heart as a relaxation response of the lungs returning to their normal size (after becoming larger during inhalation).
TVA BREATHING: Diaphragmatic breathing turns on the parasympathetic nervous system and sends de-stressing signals to every cell in the body. Breathing this way also allows your Diaphragm, the muscles of the pelvic floor, transverse abdominis [your corset muscle], and your multifidus [ the TA’s assistant in spine stabilization] to regulate intra-abomdinal pressure [ one of the biggest culprits in frequent “pregnancy side-effects”] Keep you core strong throughout your pregnancy with this prenatal safe abdominal exercise.
