Why Exercise Is Important During Pregnancy

May 14, 2015 2 Comments

More ‘sofa so good’ than ‘workout wonder’? This might make you change your tune…

If you’ve never generally been a fitness guru, you might want to have a re-think. Did you know that the more active you are during pregnancy, the easier it will be to adapt to your changing shape and weight? Plus labour is more likely to be easier, as will getting your pre-pregnancy body back.

We’d be willing to bet a lifetime supply of Anti Stretch Mark Packs that the happiest person in the world works out. This is because it has been proven that exercise boosts the brain’s good mood chemical, serotonin. This in turn helps reduce stress, ensuring a happy mum-to-be and an even happier bump.

Exercise is a natural energy booster as it strengthens your cardiovascular system, keeping you alert when you need to be.

Then there’s sleep. Exercise works off excess energy, which means you’ll be suitably knackered and comfortably zonked by bedtime. Sold!

Crucially, regular exercise prepares your body for the grand finale that is childbirth. We like to think of labour as a marathon. You certainly wouldn’t just rock up to the London Marathon with nothing but a hope and a prayer, so why would you turn up to the delivery room unprepared?

That’s why we’ve come up with some pregnancy exercise films exclusive to our newsletter subscribers. They’re coming soon, so make sure you’ve signed up to receive your FREE pregnancy exercise films to strengthen your body – or as we like to say, future proof your body – for pregnancy and beyond!
