Fit mums have fewer problems

Fit mums have fewer problems. Exercise in pregnancy is not only good for mothers, it helps babies too, a new study has found.

Researchers, led by Dr Henry Wiebe from the University of Alberta, reviewed 28 clinical trials with more than 5322 women to assess the outcomes of exercise during pregnancy on both mothers and their babies.  They found that women who undertake supervised exercise put on less weight, have smaller babies and less chance of having a caesarean section. Women who are active put on one kilo less than women who do not exercise and have 31 percent less chance of having a large baby. Their chance of having a caesarean section delivery is reduced by 20 percent.

Is has also been found that women tend to cope better in labour, recover faster and be less exhausted if they exercise properly.

It’s a win-win for mother and baby.

Healthquarters offers personal training and nutrition coaching for pregnant women. Healthquarters also offers group classes that are suitable for pregnant women to attend. To find out more, drop us an email.
