In brief: Stretching in Preg-2

For those looking to maintain health while pregnant and wanting to stretch: look for a local prenatal yoga teacher. They can suggest exercises for particular issues and give feedback on form. Be careful as joint connective tissue is softer in pregnancy--look to maintain not overdo.

My favorite stretches for pregnant patients concentrate on the low back and hamstring area.
The answer can vary depending on if you are treating a problem (such as sciatica) or looking to maintain health. The best stretches in pregnancy are done lying down (no balance issues) and work one leg at a time (to avoid compressing baby). See http://tinyurl.Com/3kj5vr9 and http://tinyurl.Com/6du6jlj.
