4 Pregnancy Fit Tips: Safe Exercises When Pregnant
As women we know how important exercise is, even when you are pregnant! Here are 4 FIT TIPS to do while pregnant to help keep you feeling great and in shape for the big D-DAY!
1. Swimming – Can help swollen ankles and relieve any joint pain while making you feel weightless no matter the size of your baby bump.
2. Prenatal Yoga – Helps you relax and can help make labor and delivery much smoother.
3. Walking – A brisk walk everyday will help you stay tone and get your endorphins going which can help you sleep at night.
4. Stretching – Can help with back, leg and hip pain and is an easy way to loosen your body up.
*While exercise during pregnancy is good for you, some activities come with more risk than reward. Avoid contact sports such as basketball, hockey, and soccer. Skip activities that increase your risk of falling, such as outdoor bicycling, roller-skating, skiing, and horseback riding. And as always, drink plenty of fluids before, during and after workouts. Be sure to check with your health care provider before starting or continuing exercise when pregnant to make sure they are safe for you and the baby!
