5 Relaxation Tips for Pregnant Moms


Exercise

As your pregnancy progresses, you may find your endurance, energy, and enthusiasm for your usual exercise routine waning – but making time each day for walking, stretching, light weightlifting, or low-impact activities like swimming offers benefits that include lowering your risk of gestational diabetes, keeping excess weight gain at bay, and even increasing the chance of a healthier birth weight for your baby. As with yoga, though, check with your doctor to make sure your routine of choice is safe for you and the baby.
