Hips strengthening exercises

Anyone know any good hip strengthening exercises?
With my son my hips dislocated and turned so that the birth canal was blocked. I got several adjustments while I was iin labor but it only took about 20 min for my hip to move back. I still have issues with my hips over 2 years later.
I want to get pregnant again someday but I'm terrified to go through that again!
Anyone know of exercises to help?

You may want to contact a physical therapist. Hope you can find something!

As I dancer I have a few that come to mind that might help. When I'm home later tonight I can pm them to you if you would like. But I would also recommend a PT. They could be very beneficial.

I did pt after he was born cause I was in an accident (def didn't help!). But I don't have insurance :( I want a midwife and homebirth so I may not have insurance when I'm pregnant.

This type of injury is due to instability. The hormones of pregnancy loosened your ligaments too much, allowing joints that normally don't move, to move out of alignment.

To rehab this you need to do stability exercises. Never try to stretch this type of injury.

Start with basic bridging exercises, quadruped exercises, and planks . Also good would be side lying leg/foot circles (use top leg, small circles that are about 1' off the floor, make you sure pelvis doens't move, spine neutral.)

Squats should be OK too. You can try other exercises that require you to sabilize a neutral spine, like side or front flys too.

At the gym, you could walk at an incline on the treadmill, do stair stepper, and elliptical, these would build hip glute and thigh strength, which would help carry your through a subsequent pregnancy.
