Staying Fit during pregnancy!

Fitness goes hand in hand with eating right to maintain your physical health and well-being during pregnancy. Pregnant or not, physical fitness helps keep the heart, bones, and mind healthy. Healthy pregnant women should get at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity a week. It's best to spread your workouts throughout the week. If you regularly engage in vigorous-intensity aerobic activity or high amounts of activity, you can keep up your activity level as long as your health doesn't change and you talk to your doctor about your activity level throughout your pregnancy.

Special benefits of physical activity during pregnancy:

  • Exercise can ease and prevent aches and pains of pregnancy including constipation, varicose veins, backaches, and exhaustion.

  • Active women seem to be better prepared for labor and delivery and recover more quickly.

  • Exercise may lower the risk of preeclampsia and gestational diabetes during pregnancy.

  • Fit women have an easier time getting back to a healthy weight after delivery.

  • Regular exercise may improve sleep during pregnancy.

  • Staying active can protect your emotional health. Pregnant women who exercise seem to have better self-esteem and a lower risk of depression and anxiety.

  • Results from a recent, large study suggest that women who are physically active during pregnancy may lower their chances of preterm delivery.


Remember, always consult with your healthcare provider before starting or continuing an exercise routine during pregnancy. They can provide personalized guidance based on your unique circumstances.

Embrace the power of physical activity during pregnancy! By staying fit, you're nurturing your body, supporting your baby's development, and enhancing your overall well-being. Enjoy this incredible journey with a healthy and active mindset!
