Most people acknowledge that exercise is good for the body, but there are still some people who can be critical of mums-to-be who do regular light bouts of exercise. Their argument is that this ‘strenuous activity’ is harmful for both the woman and her unborn child. It’s unfortunate that this perception still exists in this day and age…especially when you consider that more research is proving that regular sessions of light exercise can not only provide health benefits to pregnant women, but also to their babies. Back in my university days, my physiology study group and I decided to look at the benefits of exercise in pregnant women during their first, second and third trimesters. It wasn’t a ground-breaking study but more of a confirmation that there’s definitely nothing wrong with light, monitored bouts of exercise. Fast forward 10 years to 2011 and you’ll find that a recent study has proved…yet again, that physical activity can benefit both mum and baby .
