What to Do When You’re Experiencing Coning during Pregnancy

core connections diastasis recti pelvic floor pregnancy Nov 14, 2023

‘Is coning during pregnancy normal?’

‘Could I have prevented this? What exercises can I do to reduce this.’

‘Why am I experiencing it this pregnancy after addressing it last pregnancy?’

These are the questions that came to the surface when Tenyka emailed me her question about her weak pelvic floor, coning, and pregnancy symptoms. After working with prenatal and postnatal women for over 20 years, I’ve realized what causes coning of the belly and how to manage it.

The thing is… when it comes to healing the body, it’s never too late.

And releasing and relaxing the body is imperative as you progress through pregnancy.

In this episode, I’m sharing the exact advice and solution I would provide to someone who is like Tanika and experiencing coning during pregnancy after working postpartum to restrengthen their ore. I share information like this on our Knocked-Up Fitness monthly coaching calls and I knew it would be beneficial with you.
