Background:Discomfort that usually occurs in third trimester pregnant women is frequent urination, soreness or pain, constipation, leg cramps, respiratory problems and edema. Low back pain is one of the discomforts that pregnant women often experience in the third trimester. The growth of the uterus causes the body's center of gravity to shift forward. Therefore, pregnant women need to adjust their standing position. This means that expectant mothers must rely on their muscle strength, deal with weight gain, changes in joint relaxation, fatigue, and also pay attention to their pre-pregnancy posture. The need for pregnancy exercise is very important in strengthening and maintaining the elasticity of the abdominal wall muscles, ligaments and pelvic floor muscles associated with the birthing process. Pregnancy exercise can also help relieve low back pain which is often experienced by pregnant women because it involves movements that strengthen the abdominal muscles.
