Exercising has many benefits on one’s physical and emotional well-being, and you shouldn’t miss out on those perks because of a little belly bump! An optimal pre-natal program should include strength training, stabilization and endurance. Actually, exercise before, during and after pregnancy has unique qualities that can enhance each stage of the process.
Being fit allows you to maximize that often limited energy and give you an edge up on some of the risks you can encounter in pregnancy. It is also very important to raise awareness around strengthening the pelvic floor reducing the chance of dysfunction after delivery, which is all too common (abdominal, GI discomfort and "sneeze or cough" leaks).
So get those dumb bells out and let’s get pumped as we support your physical changes through each stage of your pregnancy journey!
Pre and Post Natal Fitness is available with Emma McCarney, BSc, CPT.
