Exercising during pregnancy no longer means having to wear loose, boring pieces. Maternity leggings are very popular pieces, both during pregnancy and postpartum recovery. In addition to allowing you to train in comfort, they have the additional advantage of being able to be used outside the gym .
Exercise during pregnancy: Yes or no?
More and more studies are revealing the multiple benefits of exercising throughout pregnancy. And the advantages don't just apply to the mother , but also to the baby and their health in the first years of life.
Moderate and regular physical activity , such as walking or running , has beneficial effects on the fetus. Exercise practiced by the mother, especially in the third trimester, improves the baby's cardiovascular capacity while still in the womb.
As long as it is approved by health professionals, sport during pregnancy is highly recommended, as long as the woman takes some precautions.
Care to take to train safely during pregnancy
The first step is to seek your doctor 's recommendations. If there are no impediments, the ideal is to turn to a personal trainer to create and follow a specific and appropriate exercise plan.
In principle, women who already practiced sport before becoming pregnant will be able to continue during pregnancy, making some adjustments. Women who had more sedentary habits can start exercising, as long as they do it gradually.
Other precautions to take into consideration:
- Always consult the opinion of your obstetrician-gynecologist (GO) before starting to train;
- Practice accompanied, especially if you choose to do sports outdoors ;
- Assess the body's reactions and slow down in case of discomfort or an exaggerated increase in heart rate;
- Always maintain adequate hydration and prefer cool, ventilated places to train;
- Avoid any activities that involve impacts or risk of falling .
In short, moderation is the key word and each case is different, so no two pregnancies are the same.
