Fitness is a pretty high priority in California, and that goes for moms-to-be, too! In fact, you shouldn’t be surprised if you see women exercising during pregnancy, as it actually provides a host of benefits -- from relieving discomforts like back pain, swollen feet, and fatigue to reducing stress and improving stamina for delivery. It can even improve your mood and posture as well as help you sleep better and prevent certain pregnancy issues that can arise.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you should go all out like you did before your baby was on board. You need to make sure your doctor is on board, as well! It’s important to have a medical professional help create an appropriate fitness plan and monitor you while exercising when you’re expecting to ensure there are no pregnancy-related conditions present, or that pop up, putting you or your baby in harm’s way.
