Breathe Easy: Essential Diaphragmatic Breathing Technique for Postnatal Mamas
I often get asked, “What can I do immediately that will help me recover so I can get back to exercising.”
Let me introduce the Diaphragmatic Breathing Technique, is a simple yet effective way to improve core stability and overall health AND you can do it DAY 1. This technique can be performed while lying supine, sitting, on all fours, or standing. Bonus points for getting into nature & doing it!
To perform the Diaphragmatic Breathing Technique:
Begin by inhaling deeply through your diaphragm, allowing your abdomen and sides of the body to fill gently with air. Avoid any forceful expansion of the belly.
As you inhale, observe the softening of the pelvic floor (PF) with the breath.
Exhale slowly, allowing the PF to return to its neutral state and the belly to fall back towards the spine. It is important to avoid any intentional activation of the core or PF during the exhale.
This simple breath should be easy and unforced. However, for added benefit, a Deep Core Activation can be incorporated into the exhale component of the technique.
With regular practice, the Diaphragmatic Breathing Technique should become your new normal, helping to teach the inner core muscles to work together effectively.
The Diaphragmatic Breathing Technique is a crucial aspect of post-natal recovery and overall health. Incorporating this technique into your daily routine can help to improve core stability and support a successful post-natal experience.
