Are you expecting a baby? then this blog is just for you. No matter which week of your pregnancy you are in, doing exercise and keeping yourself active has its own set of benefits. In my last blog, I had listed all the exercises a pregnant woman should engage in. In this article, I would like to share with all dear pregnant mamas, what are the benefits they would enjoy by doing them on a consistent basis. Though exercises offer a whole range of benefits, I have just listed the top benefits of exercise below:
Having read these benefits, I am sure every pregnant mom would kick start her exercise schedule immediately, let me make it clear, never begin your exercise without your doctor's consent. The next tip would be to get an expert's advice and also to keep your exercise protocol less intense. Your body is your best guide, it will tell you when you are straining too much.
My recommendation as a physiotherapist and a mother is to find a credible antenatal instructor. If you are living in Chennai, sessions run by Newborn Connexions hosted by Dr.Bijal Vasa, Dwi, Cloudninecare etc are very comprehensive for all pregnant mothers. These sessions include pragmatic insights right from a simulated labor to preparations for labor, they are a rare kind to find in an Indian set up.
I also came across an impressive video by the actor.Lara Dutta, where she demonstrates a complete yoga session that you can do during pregnancy. These yogic combinations were quite effective and offered completely free by a stem cell bank, you can begin your exercise by following this video: pregnocare.com or purchase the DVD online on Amazon.
In my next article, I will share more interesting insights on getting back into shape after pregnancy.
