Have you got a Question?
If you are healthy and have a low risk pregnancy it is safe to start or continue with exercise. It has many physical and mental benefits for both mum and baby. I always recommend discussing safe exercise with your midwife or health proffesional before starting.
Regular exercise in pregnancy can have numerous benefits for mum and baby.
- Reduces back pain
- eases constipation
- May decrease your risk of gestational diabetes, preeclampsia and cesaerean delivery
- promotes health weight gain
- Improves your overall fitness and strengthens you heart and blood vessels
- Helps you lose to the baby weight after your baby
It is recommended that mothers should exercise for 150 minutes a week of moderate intensity aerobic activity every week. This could include walking, swimming and can be 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week or broken down to 10 minutes at a time broken up through every day.
You can find sessions like this as part of the programme.
Modified Pilates is widely considered safe and suitable exercise during pregnancy. My Bump and Me Pilates Membership includes many classes that you can use throughout your pregnancy and has sessions adapted to each stage and your changing body.
It is really important to listen to your body as you are exercising and if something changes or doesn’t feel right please ensure you stop and speak to your GP or midwife.
Here are some symptoms to always look out for whilst participating in any exercise…
- Vaginal Bleeding
- Abdominal Pain
- Calf swelling, redness or pain
