  • Has anybody notice that bringing your legs close like mermaid when getting out of bed is very, very much painful when you pregnant with pelvic bone pain. i have try that and pains like hell. They should use a pregnant woman with pelvic pain to do such demonstration not unpregnant woman.

    So, do make video for healthy pregnancy. Thank you so much.

  • Thank you so much sir����. i a. following ur exercises its beneficial to me to get rid of my postpartum backpain once again thanks a lot for ur good work.

  • Hi. I am a midwife and would say wonderful to see that you have done some safe exercises for pregnancy and postpartum women, would say though maybe not so good for post cesarean until 6 weeks plus depending on healing.

    Was going to ask what would be ideal would be a video for women with super pubic dysfunction. Do’s and don’t, especially now as we are in lockdown so Physio refferal are difficult.

  • I’m postpartum having sijoint pain on only the left hand side, are there any additional stretches/exersizes I can do to target this area. Thanks

  • Are there stretches/workouts you can do without laying on your back? When I was pregnant, I could not lay on my back cuz there would be too much pressure on my vena cava and it would make me feel faint and sick.

  • Thanks for all your great videos
    I gave birth to my fourth baby and since I have scoliosis I have been doing the exercises in your videos regarding it. I have question though, are those exercises designed only to relieve the pain or they can reverse the scoliosis as well?

  • This didn’t really give any practical steps. Long introduction followed by a suggestion to do exercise, follow your program and be committed

  • Are you spying on me…?�� You always post the exact thing I need! I’m not pregnant but having a little lower back pain. This is just the trick! A few weeks ago it was hip pain, and before that shoulder pain and your exercises always help. Thank you! Keep doing what you’re doing!
