Tight shoulders, neck, and upper back…every nursing parent’s got ’em! This week on the podcast we’re diving deep on this type of tension to understand:
- Why do our muscles feel so terrible when nursing
- What role does posture play
- 4 exercises and stretches to do right now to feel better
Be sure to also check out Ep. 60: Being kind to yourself and your movement practice with Erica Webb, whose perspective on muscle tension I referenced here, as well as Ep 62: Reframing Tight Hip Flexors where we discuss some of these same concepts in relation to the hip flexors. If you’re interested in more tools for getting out of pain with a new baby, be sure to apply for the next cohort of Strong As A Mother: Postpartum.
