Another way to work around this lighting setup is to soften it more by reducing the contrast between highlights and shadows. For that I would add a full body-sized diffusion panel and place it in between the subject and the strobe that is closest to it. Additionally, I would place a V-Flat to fill in shadows. I find this setup especially suitable for maternity portraits. The final look is so dreamy and painterly.
