What are the Benefits of Exercise During Pregnancy?

Many benefits of a fit pregnancy can include:

  • It eases aches and pains
  • Being more prepared for labor and delivery and recovering faster
  • Returning to a healthy weight after delivery faster
  • Lowered risk of preeclampsia and gestational diabetes
  • Improved sleep
  • Decreased risk of preterm delivery

Pregnancy Workouts

The best activities for pregnant women tend to be low-impact activities, like walking, swimming, and cycling. Women can usually continue doing higher intensity sports, with your OBGYNs approval, if you did so before becoming pregnant. As long as you start exercising slowly and cool down slowly, take frequent breaks, and don’t overexert yourself, exercising will help you have a healthy pregnancy.

Contact your OBGYN at South Florida Women’s Care to learn more about the best diets and exercise habits throughout your pregnancy.
