Soon to be moms……did you know regular exercisers are 75% less likely to need a forceps delivery, 55% less likely to have an episiotomy, and up to 4x less likely to have a C-section! 💡
If that’s not reason enough to continue (or start) working out while pregnant, I don’t know what else is!
Working out doesn’t always mean lifting heavy weights or doing those intense workouts you see people doing on IG. A workout is what works for YOUR body. Everyone is different. Everyone has different obstacles. I currently lift light weights and do occasional cardio as my workout. When I hit about 8 months I know light cardio is about all I’ll be able to manage. When I was pregnant with Ryder at 8 months, my belly was too big for me to comfortably lift weights. But I could do the elliptical without issue. However when I hit 9 months I had too much pressure and aching that workout became something I had to just let go of for the time being.
If you’re someone who doesn’t workout at all, try starting with just walking. Going on a walk can be considered a workout! It gets your body moving and blood flowing! It’s better than doing nothing at all!🏃♀️
