The Benefits of Prenatal Exercise

The Benefits of Prenatal Exercise

Prenatal exercise tied to lower risk of high birth weight and fewer C-sections (dailyRx News) Pregnancy calls for kicking those swollen feet up and simply trying to relax, right? Maybe not. Moms-to-be might not need to be so fast to slow down.

A new study found that pregnant women who exercised were less likely to have a baby with high birth weight than those who didn’t exercise.

"The issue related to improved outcomes with prenatal exercise really is not unique to pregnancy," explained Andre F. Hall, MD, a board-certified OB-GYN at Birth and Women’s Care in Fayetteville, NC, in an interview with dailyRx News. "Exercise improves the functioning of most of the body’s systems and simply this is carried over to pregnancy and thereby results in an improved outcome."
