Active Pregnancy

Physical activity for pregnant mothers:

  • You can engage in moderate physical activity, such as prenatal yoga
  • Avoid activities that involve lying on your back or that put you at risk for injury

  • Relieves stress and fatigue
  • Improves mental and emotional health
  • Increases strength and flexibility
  • Prevents chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease, for both mom and baby
  • Promotes better labour outcomes
