Exercise and Pregnancy

Post by AlleyRose on Sat Apr 26, 2014 9:30 am

Do exercise and pregnancy go together? The answer is YES! Staying active and having regular exercise in pregnancy offers a lot of benefits. Regular exercise will help you keep fit and help avoid pregnancy complications like preeclampsia and diabetes. Exercise will also help you keep your weight gain under control and can shorten labour.
The level of exercise you can do depends on your fitness level prior to pregnancy. So, if you ran frequently before you found out you were pregnant and you don’t have any pregnancy complications, there’s no reason why you should stop as long as you do some sensible modifications to your training program. Make sure you talk to your midwife or doctor about exercise and pregnancy. Not all exercises are suitable for pregnant women – so seek professional advice early.
