Benefits of prenatal + postpartum exercise

General Health Benefits

Supervised exercise can reduce the risk of developing gestational diabetes, pregnancy-induced hypertension, and exessive weight gain. A proper exercise program can also decrease symptoms of constipation, back pain, and leg cramps, improve posture, energy levels and overall mood.

Pelvic Floor Health

The muscles around your vagina and rectum support your uterus, bladder and bowel. During pregnancy and birth these muscles can stretch and weaken causing urinary and stool incontinence and in some cases uterine prolapse. Strenghtening these muscles can prevent urine leaks and increase pelvic organ support.

Postpartum Depression

Some women can develop postpartum depression (PPD) after childbirth. Along with psychotherapy and prescription medications, exercise can be used as a tool to help manage some of the symptoms of PPD, such as: sadness, anxiety, depression and exhaustion.
