There is so much “core confusion” when it comes to what is regarded as safe abdominal work during pregnancy. 

So where does the confusion come from?

If you are a yoga student for example or see a trainer, they may advise you to no longer do any core work – whilst partially correct they are being too general in this statement.

More accurately they are referring to the superficial abdominal muscles which should be avoided absolutely during pregnancy and into your reconnection stage after childbirth. Alternatively the deep core muscles should in fact be the focus and form the foundation of all your prenatal workouts.
