Exercises in Pregnancy
Updated: May 8
Regular exercise during pregnancy can improve health, reduce the risk of excess weight gain and back pain. Swimming, brisk walking, yoga, and stationary cycling are good ways to get fit during pregnancy. Some special exercises like squatting and pelvic tilts can help prepare for labor. Yoga strengthens muscles, stimulates blood circulation, and enhances relaxation. Exercises in pregnancy help newborns achieve a healthier birth weight, a lower fat mass, improved stress tolerance, and advanced neurobehavioral maturation.
