Exercise during pregnancy – how healthy is it really?

Is exercise during pregnancy really healthy and advisable? We would like to address this topic today.

Although some women believe they should rest during this time, there are good reasons to stay active. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at the benefits of exercise during pregnancy and show you how you can do good for yourself and your baby.

1. Benefits of exercise during pregnancy

The majority of women are aware of how important physical activity is for their overall health. But what are the benefits of exercise for an expectant mother, especially during pregnancy? Below we list some of the benefits.

- Exercising during pregnancy improves cardiovascular health and increases muscle strength. This can help to bear the extra weight and improve overall fitness.

- Pregnancy hormones can cause mood swings, but exercise releases endorphins, which can act as natural mood enhancers.

-During pregnancy, regular exercise can reduce sleep problems.

- Exercise reduces the risk of gestational diabetes

2. Safe exercise during pregnancy

It is important to note that not all sports are the same during pregnancy. There is a possibility that certain activities may pose a higher risk than others. Here are some sports that can be practiced:

- Walking can do wonders during pregnancy. Most pregnant women complain of back pain. Walking relieves this pain.

- Swimming is a good way to train the whole body and at the same time protect your joints. If you have problems with your intervertebral discs, swimming is a good way to prevent them.

- Due to the weight gain and the associated changes in posture, pregnancy yoga relieves tension and helps reduce stress.

- If you do strength training during pregnancy, you can prepare better for your birth. Your stamina and strength will increase significantly to cope with the pushing contractions. In addition, the risk of developing gestational diabetes will decrease.

3. Conclusion

We note that exercise during pregnancy can be beneficial for many expectant mothers. Better physical condition, improved mood, improved sleep quality and weight control are some of the positive effects.

However, it is important to note that not all sports are suitable and that individual health issues must be taken into account.

Before you start exercising, it is more than advisable to see a doctor or your midwife to talk about it and to make sure whether and what kind of sport you can do. So exercising during pregnancy is a good thing. Listen to your body and take it easy. Don't forget to drink plenty of fluids :-)
