Did you know that working out during pregnancy means you’re less likely to suffer from common pelvis and lower back pain?
It can also help you gain a more appropriate weight during pregnancy.
Some of the benefits of staying active during pregnancy are: reducing the risk of preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, unplanned c sections, increasing energy and boosting mood, improving sleep quality, easing constipation and bloating, enhancing overall mental wellness, reducing hip, lower back, and pelvis pain, and having stronger endurance , which can help lead to a shorter active labor.
Just 20 minutes of moderate exercise 3 times a week can enhance your baby's brain development, as per a University of Montreal study.
Pregnancy workouts not only keep your body healthy, but they also work wonders for your brain! Exercise boosts mood, vitality, and overall well-being while reducing brain shrinkage and enhancing cognitive function. How cool is that?!
Working out during pregnancy also means you’re more likely to have a quicker and smoother recovery postpartum.
This is not the time for extreme workouts. Focused, intentional movement that helps set you up for a healthy pregnancy and better recovery is the goal of this program.
This program is broken up into 4 sections: Intro, 1st trimester, 2nd trimester, 3rd trimester.
The workouts include some traditional exercises and lots of specific movement beneficial for pregnancy, such as diaphragmatic breathing, posture correction, deep core activation, mobility work, and more. Because our core canister is all connected from our diaphragm, abdominals, hip flexors and pelvic floor, we will be working on a whole body approach. This is way more focused than just doing kegels or bird dogs!
The routines are shorter in length so that it's easier to fit them in if you're busy or tired.
