In the past, concerns about Pre-Natal Exercise made women feel they must be exercise-shy during pregnancy. Now these concerns have been definitively disproven and evidence shows great benefits in store for the Active Mother.
So long as the mother trains appropriately for her stage of pregnancy, and a doctor hasn't stated that Pre-Natal Exercise could threaten the baby, due to maternal health complications, women can embrace the benefits in store for them and their child.
Pre-Natal Exercise is linked to a shorter, less painful delivery and quicker recovery after labour.
A Pre-Natal Exercise programme will help to prevent excessive maternal weight gain, allow women to better regulate their body temperature and, improve their sense of well-being and mood during their pregnancy.
Foetal body-composition is favourable when born to women who follow a Pre-Natal Exercise programme, and the overall health of the baby can be supported through exercise adherence.
