Exercising during Pregnancy
If you did not exercise regularly before becoming pregnant, now is the time to start! Staying healthy and fit when you are expecting is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your baby. Moderate exercise, as recommended by your provider, can help burn extra calories. Do not push yourself — simply walking or swimming not only provides great health benefits, they are safe options for pregnant women as well.
