New Study Shows Exercise During Pregnancy Combats High Blood Pressure and Oversized Babies

Recent findings published in American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology indicate exercising during pregnancy may not only benefit your overall health, but your baby’s health as well. A joints study from two notable Universities found specific and beneficial evidence supporting exercise for expectant mothers. Not only is it likely that mothers will keep away unwanted excess weight, but they reduce their risk of hypertension (high blood pressure) and the chances of their baby being oversized by several times.

The goals suggested to expectant mothers are simple to remember, because it’s the benchmark of keeping a healthy amount of activity in one’s day: walk 10,000 steps a day. There is no greater need for mothers to increase their exercise habits beyond those that are suggested for every individual to be healthy. No strenuous weightlifting or cardio necessary, just 10,000 steps a day. Keeping that simple goal in one’s mind can help foster a happy and healthy pregnancy.
