Mom Posture needs to be fixed in order to avoid sway back, a pelvis that thrusts forward and to avoid pain in the hip, knees, back and everywhere else.  In this video it’s myself, Post Natal Fitness Expert Trina Medves and Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist Silvana Yee correcting posture on a Mom of two carrying her very heavy toddler. Here is the proper way to stand with your baby, little one and toddler.

Common Mistakes

  • Carrying your child on one side of the body “the hip carry”
  • Leaning to one side
  • Pushing your pelvis forward
  • Tucking your butt aka “butt tucker”
  • Poor posture causes back pain
  • Rounding the shoulders
  • Sway back posture


  • Distribute the weight evenly in the front of the body
  • Pull the shoulders back and down
  • Lift tall through the chest
  • Proper posture feels very awkward at first
  • Booty is always the last thing in the door
  • Focus on proper breathing through your diaphragm
  • Think of a straight line from the crown of your head to your tailbone
  • Tuck the chin slightly and avoid pushing the chin forward
  • Tilt the pelvis back
  • Ribcage should align with the hip bones / pelvis
