Exercise during Pregnancy – Benefits for Mom and Baby

Benefits of exercise for mom and baby

As long as mom is healthy and able to exercise during pregnancy, research shows there are numerous benefits not only for mom, but also for baby while in utero. However, as pregnancy develops and your body changes, you may need to make adjustments in the type, duration and level of exertion of your exercise. A good rule of thumb is to continue any exercise you were doing on a regular basis prior to your pregnancy, except for exercises which could putstrain or pressure on your abdomen, such as yoga poses lying down on your stomach, or require you to be on your back after the first trimester.

Pregnant? There’s an app for that.

As soon as the second line, “yes” or plus sign appears, expectant mothers (and fathers) start the journey of learning what they need to know about bringing this new life into the world. There are books, family and friends, health care providers, and social media available to seek guidance and advice on everything from what to do and not do now that you are pregnant. As we have become a mobile society, grasping our connection with all of these resources in the palm of our hand, there are also apps designed specifically for this journey.
