The core breath is really useful for a couple of things. So the first thing is really just connecting to our core when we’re pregnant and postpartum or any time. The second thing is it’ll help us connect to our pelvic floor
. The third is it’ll help our ribs function a little bit better, which is typical in pregnancy. As we get more pregnant and the contents of our uterus, and our belly, and our stomachs, and our organs all get squished up. Our ribs tend to splay out a little bit, and then they don’t, our rib function isn’t quite as good as it used to be. Then the fourth part is it can really help with swelling in the lower limbs because a lot of our major blood vessels go right through our diaphragm. If our diaphragm isn’t functioning properly, then those blood vessels don’t get the same massage action that they’re used to getting. And that can actually really contribute to swelling in the lower limbs.
