Your body undergoes many changes during pregnancy, and one of them is your posture. As your belly grows, you may develop a backward lean and increased lower back arch. Additionally, the area between your shoulder blades may become more rounded, and your cervical spine may develop a so-called 'tech neck'.

These changes can lead to uncomfortable symptoms such as tense neck muscles and headaches. To avoid these problems, it's important to focus on the right exercise and body awareness. By exercising the lower back muscles around the pelvis and lumbar spine, thoracic spine, shoulders, and neck, you can keep your body strong and stable.

Also, focus on body awareness and maintaining a grounded, strong posture. By being aware of your posture and actively working to improve it, you can reduce uncomfortable symptoms and feel more comfortable during your pregnancy.
