A pregnancy does not mean you have to stop exercising, in fact exercising throughout your pregnancy will mean you are fit and healthy for delivery and the demands of motherhood! Benefits of exercise in the ante natal period include:
- improves posture and reduces lordosis/lower body pain
- strengthens pelvic floor and core
- improves circulation and reduce risk of varicose veins
- aids recovery from birth
- improves sleep
- Some evidence suggests that the foetus also benefits with increased stress tolerance, neurobehavioural development and reduced distress during labour
However, it can be scary knowing what to do/not to do during pregnancy and 1-2-1 offers the comfort of putting this in professional hands.
