Exercise & Pregnancy
Safe, smart exercise is possible throughout most pregnancies. Staying active can help expectant mothers avoid swelling, back pain and excess weight gain that can accompany pregnancy. Exercise is also good for the developing fetus, helping keep fetal heart rate lower and improving fetal nutrition. Mothers-to-be must avoid activities that could cause falls or collisions. However, many activities can build strength and stamina that will help them through delivery and recovery afterward.
