Pregnancy is an exciting time full of anticipation and preparation.
It is well known that exercise helps manage stress and can improve moods. Exercise is essential to everyone but especially for pregnant women, because it better enables the body to grow a healthy baby. Women who exercise during their pregnancy reduce their risk of gestational diabetes by almost 50% and their risk of developing preeclampsia by almost 40%.
Pregnancy and birth are often blamed for many of the core challenges women face postpartum. Incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, lower-back pain, and a tummy that simply won’t lie flat anymore. Women have a false belief that because they have had children, it is normal to have these challenges. It is not.
Just because you are pregnant does not mean you need to suffer. So much of what women deal with postpartum can be prevented or minimized if they are given the right information during pregnancy. Things like lower-back pain, sacroiliac joint pain, pubic symphysis diastasis (pain in the front o your pelvis at the pubic joint), and dyspareunia (pain during sex), can all be treated and often cured during pregnancy or postpartum.
