Lying on your back for extended periods of time, such as when sleeping, isn't safe after your first trimester, but is perfectly fine for short periods. This pose, quite appropriately called Happy Baby, offers wonderful relief for tight hips and an achy lower back.
- Lie flat on your back. Bend both knees and hold onto the outside edges of your flexed feet with your hands.
- Gently use your upper body strength to equally press both knees toward the floor beside your torso. Enjoy this pose for five breaths.
