When you’re pregnant, your body is constantly working hard growing another little human being.
It’s very important to take excellent care of your ever-changing body during this special time. As long as your doctor, midwife or nurse practitioner gives you the OK to exercise, you should carve out time to exercise and stay active throughout your pregnancy.
Here are some helpful tips to stay active, keep moving, and create a healthy physical routine:
You’ll be taking care of baby when he or she arrives, so it’s imperative to care of YOU. Taking care of your body when you’re pregnant is a good habit to start now.
Staying active while pregnant will help you when that bundle of joy arrives. You’ll have the strength and endurance throughout all the feedings, diaper changes, and all those sweet cuddle moments. You need to be healthy and strong for you and for your baby. A healthy and strong mama is a happy mama.
