Why should I exercise while pregnant?
Although you may not feel up to running a marathon, pregnant women benefit greatly from exercising throughout their pregnancy. Prenatal fitness is recommended for all women in conversation with your doctor.
Prenatal exercise can help you...
- feel better! You will release endorphins, boost your energy level, relieve backaches, improve digestive issues, improve joint pain, and sleep better.
- prepare your body for birth! Strong muscles and a healthy heart can ease labor and delivery.
- feel more confident in your changing body! Prenatal fitness can help mamas tone muscles and improve posture, as well as stimulate blood flow for that pregnancy glow! Exercise can be a useful tool to maintaining a healthy pregnancy weight and can help mamas feel more confident in their postpartum bodies.
- have a healthy baby! Along with other prenatal guidelines set forth by your doctor, a healthy, happy mama is a huge factor in having a healthy baby!
