During pregnancy, we need to prepare our body to become a suitable environment for the baby to grow in, while staying happy and emotionally and mentally healthy. A well-structured prenatal fitness program can make pregnancy both healthier and easier. Some of the benefits of exercising regularly throughout your pregnancy and after delivery are:
•    Prevents excessive weight gain
•    Muscle Strengthening
•    Improves Flexibility
•    Reduces joint stress
•    Reduces risk of joint injuries
•    Reduces edema
•    Reduces chances of discomfort like nerve entrapment
•    Reduces joint pain (back pain)
•    Cardio-respiratory conditioning
•    Improves mental health by reducing depression
•    Reduces breathlessness and improves oxygenation
•    Help control Gestational Diabetes

Basic guidelines that need to be followed while exercising during pregnancy:
•    Don’t exhaust yourself
•    Avoid strenuous exercise
•    Do aerobic exercises rather than resistance exercises
•    Always warm up before exercise and cool down afterwards
•    Drink plenty of water and other fluids

Carrying out an antenatal and postnatal fitness program is one of the best lifestyle and health choices you can make!
