But what do the experts really recommend about lifting and pregnancy?
Healthcareer Helen Lyng-Hansen writes on his website netsundhedsplejerske.dk:
– It is recommended that you do not lift anything weighing more than 12 kilos and the total lifting amount must not exceed 1000 kilos per day. When you are 7 months old, it is recommended that you only lift half, ie, only 500 kilograms per day. If you lift too much pregnancy, you can have – besides getting back and pelvic – also bleeding, and there is a risk of abortion or premature birth, she warns.
If you still want to lift during pregnancy …
If you have a smaller child already, who would like to be lifted, Helen Lyng-Hansen calls for, if possible, to introduce new habits – for example. Sit down to the height of the child instead when it wants to contact you. You can also buy for example. a small stool chair so that the child can climb himself where it is needed, the healthcare professional is advised.
If you still need lifting, it’s important that you use the right lifting technique, using the strength of your legs, has a straight back and holds what you lift as close to the body as possible.
Also, remember to cling to your pelvic floor and if you get any pain, stop lifting, emphasizes Helen Lyng-Hansen.
