Like my previous post on the “fit preggo” It was about exercising in pregnancy and basic exercises you could carry out. Today I want to give you reasons why you should exercise in pregnancy . so here are ten reasons why you should exercise during pregnancy:
1) it helps you to maintain a healthy weight .
2) it helps to reduce common disorders of pregnancy.
3) it helps in better glucose utilization by increasing insulin sensitivity I.e it reduces the risk of gestational diabetes.
4) improved fetal(baby) growth.
5) it can help to shorten labour and delivery time .
6) it improves body awareness, balance , coordination and posture.
7) it helps to improve blood circulation and reduces diastolic blood pressure, reducing the risk of pregnancy induced hypertension.
8) it also increases endurance and stamina.
9) it helps to prevent slow and unprogressive labour.
10) last but not the least , exercise helps to improve mood.
