Recommended sports for pregnant women

While pregnant, you can play sports that don’t endanger them. It is wise to avoid high impact sports or those that can cause injury.

Women who wasn’t into sports before the pregnancy should start with low-impact exercises. Those who already exercised before pregnancy can continue doing so if the doctor okays it.

Below are some suggestions:

Walking at a steady pace without being tested blood circulation and helps to prevent circulatory problems.

Dance at a light pace.

Riding a bike on flat sites: it helps to tone and improves circulation. From the fifth month, a stationary bicycle stops falls.

Yoga: improves body posture and helps to relax the body and mind, preparing the woman for childbirth.

Swimming: many muscle groups are exercised and it helps to reduce back strain.

Pilates: improves endurance and flexibility and also encourages circulation in the abdominal area.

Kegel Exercises: Pregnant women who does Kegel exercises typically happy birth. Strengthening those muscles while pregnancy can aid in you developing the ability to control your muscles in labor and delivery.

Kegel is also suggested after birth to encourage healing.  Kegel can be done anywhere and at any time so that not one individual will and no one knows you’re doing them.

The type and intensity of exercise appropriate for each woman will depend on the physical form prior to pregnancy and how gestation diabetes evolves.

Choose a sport that you like to feel comfortable, so you will enjoy and be relax while you are improving your health and your baby’s.
