Participants will learn:

• Exercises to improve circulation and core strength (including uterus and pelvis muscles), and increase comfort

• Deep-breathing exercises for the physical demands of labor, birth and motherhood

• After-labor stretches and exercises to help rebuild strength and lose weight

The third trimester and postnatal workshop will run from 10:30 a.m. -12 p.m. Participants will learn exercises and stretches to help them recover from labor, regain strength and build endurance while decreasing weight.
