Moms: Get Moving

It is not only considered safe but you are encouraged to continue to maintain an active lifestyle during pregnancy. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, being active for at least 30 minutes on most, if not all, days of the week can benefit your health during pregnancy. Engaging in physical activity can benefit your health in the following ways:

  • Reduce backaches, constipation, bloating and swelling
  • Prevent or treat gestational diabetes
  • Increase your energy
  • Improve your mood
  • Improve your posture
  • Promote muscle tone, strength and endurance
  • Improve sleep patterns

Moms: Get Moving, Exercise for Pregnancy and Beyond is a 30-minute exercise video for women who are pregnant or recently gave birth and promotes muscle strengthening and flexibility, all part of a healthy exercise routine. Moms: Get Moving was designed by a Gundersen clinical exercise physiologist and hosted by Gundersen wellness education specialists. It provides gentle exercises that will help you feel strong and energized during and after your pregnancy.
