Prenatal And Postnatal Exercises
Exercise is important for women during pregnancy and after the birth of their child. Not only does it help prepare the body for the rigors of pregnancy and aid in the healing process after birth but it also provides an opportunity for social interaction and an endorphin boost !
How to Become a Prenatal Exercise
Many of today’s obstetricians promote the benefits of exercise and physical fitness for their pregnant patients experiencing normal, healthy pregnancies. But exercise in the prenatal and postnatal period must be approached with care, making personal training during this time a valuable service.
What are the Benefits of Prenatal Exercise ?
As pregnancy progresses, the body begins to undergo a host of physical changes as a way to accommodate the growing baby. More specifically, as the uterus grows, a woman’s center of gravity begins to shift. Further, the pelvic floor takes on additional stress as the baby’s weight increases, and joints begin to loosen in response to hormones. All of these physiological changes make good posture, cardiovascular health, and strength crucial to a healthy and comfortable pregnancy.
