    When you say “closing the open birthing pattern, you are referring to using this technique postpartum, not during pregnancy, right? Should they start doing this right away after giving birth (as long as it is pain free)?

    1. Lynn Schulte says:

      It depends. If someone is having pelvic pain during pregnancy have them try this exercise and see if it helps. You won’t be doing any harm for the upcoming birth. You’ll be providing them with more stability to help get them out of pain. yes they should do this exercise right after birth as long as it’s pain free. You got it!

    Hi Lynn,
    How often is best to recommend daily 1x or more often?

    1. Lynn Schulte says:

      Yes, just once a day should be good. Do it for about a week and then reassess to see if the ischiums are still splayed or not.
