Staying in shape while you’re pregnant can be quite a challenge. Not only does your changing body restrict the type of activities you can do, many pregnant women are unsure as to which types of physical activities are actually safe during pregnancy.
The good news is, there are plenty of workouts designed specifically for expectant moms. From prenatal yoga to belly dancing, there are a variety of ways you can get into shape without posing a risk to yourself or your growing baby.
One of the many benefits of exercising during pregnancy is that you can actually avoid separated stomach muscles, which means a tighter tummy after birth. In addition, being physically fit can be an asset during labor, as you will have better endurance and consequently, be better able to control your body while giving birth.
