This blog post and video was my reaction to other informational videos I was finding out there of how to properly get up off of the floor while pregnant. As you can see in the video, the other options I tried were difficult and frankly painful for me. The option I demonstrate (option #3) uses Feldenkrais techniques to utilize the body as a whole unit, requiring very little muscular effort, and thus results in an easy transfer to standing.
If you are in your third trimester of pregnancy (like me), have knee pain with kneeling or just plainly have difficulty getting yourself up off the the floor, this alternative option I demonstrate should make life a little easier. You can even see in the video how easy it is to reverse the movement to get down to the floor with ease. Try it out and let me know how it goes!
