Exercising During Pregnancy - Your First Gift To Your Child!

Dec 12, 2007
The advantages of working out all through your pregnancy, is a wonderful gift that you can bestow on your baby. You may have fantasized about such a possibility from the time you were a small girl, amusing herself with her baby doll. Now, that much yearned for dream has turned into a reality. You are soon going to enter motherhood and the time is just right for you to think about the advantages of working out in your pregnancy period, and carry out everything possible in order to make the feeling of being with child and delivering, a beautiful memory for you as well as your living and kicking baby doll.

For a number of years, Native Americans and explorers discharged their duties right until it was the expected time for delivery. Afterwards, it was believed to be the rule for women who were pregnant to literally be in their beds, in the early stages of their pregnancy, and stay more or less confined to their homes until several weeks after the birth of the baby.

Regardless of discussing the merits of keeping fit all through pregnancy, and what is believed to be secure and dangerous for the mother and the child, there is clear evidence, borne out by experience and detailed study, that the merits of staying fit during pregnancy put a stop to some of the recurring problems in pregnancy and the subsequent delivery. It also helps avoid complications afterwards in life, and ensures you have a strapping, healthy baby.

Expectant mothers, who work out before and in the course of pregnancy, normally have an uncomplicated labor and a much easy and far less distressful delivery than those mothers who never worked out during their pregnancy.

According to research, there has been a remarkable reduction in pregnancy related problems such as hypertension, gestational diabetes, abdominal muscular separation, and pre-eclampsia, in expectant women who carried out regular training exercises.

Expectant mothers who take part in physical exercises reap its benefits, which are quite worth the effort they have put in. The decline in trauma associated with birth in your baby, babies with extremely low-birth weight, jaundice, and premature births effectively underlines the need to work out for the benefit of you both.

After you have studied the various options, you may make up your mind to work out at the YMCA in your area or go to the civic center for water aerobics or to go swimming with other pregnant mothers. You may also opt for viewing DVDs, videos on exercises or joining organized work out groups, particularly for pregnant mothers.

Alternatively, you may wish to go for a nice evening walk every day with your friend or partner or even walk your dog. Provided, the exercise is sanctioned by your doctor, you are happy with it, and it can easily be incorporated into your daily schedule, then it is of supreme importance for you to exercise for your sake as well as that of the baby to derive the wonderful benefits of keeping fit during pregnancy.
