They are all good positions, each will work the supporting muscles a little different, but the concept is the same for all. Many times on all fours positions helps to relieve pressure from the weight of the baby which is an extra benefit. My suggestion is to do different kinds to mix it up.


Our first arrived February 6, 2006, what a blessing!! Abigail Susan Hambidge, she is truly a miracle!!!

Do all the pelvic tilt positions, i.e. floor, wall, squat, on all fours, give you the same physical benefit? Or is one position more beneficial than another? Thanks!

A good exercise video is Kathy Smith's Pregnancy Workout. She shows you how to do a pelvic tilt and the workout is really great to reduce back pain. It's one of my favorites!

You can also do the pelvic tilt in a squat position and a lunge position.
Stand with feet wide apart and squat down as though you are sitting in a chair. Make sure your knees are goind past your toes.
Once you are in position, squat and hold it (if you can! If this is uncomfortable from the start try putting a chair in front of you and holding onto the back of it. . .OR. . STOP all together.)
Now when in the squat position try tilting your pelvis forward. It should feel as though you are trying to crunch your abs. You can also picture your pelvis as a bucket and starting and stoppingthe flow of water as you do your pelvic tilts.
If a full pelvic tilt isnt good for you, try doing half circles (push your butt out as you go from side to side with your pelvis)

I hope that these instructions are too hard to follow.
FYI- pelvic tilts are great exercises now and during labour (if you can) in any position, but especially squat they open up the pelvis and help the baby descend and ease delivery.

Hope this helps.

I tried to find many sites which would give directions on doing the pelvic tilt but none were very helpful?

baby fit contains the exercise but is recommended only for the first trimester.

But one of your article contains pelvic tilt as a way of easing back pain. How do I do it safely, I am on my 31st week and hence a bit careful? Should I do it or not?
