Food cravings and weight gain are common symptoms of pregnancy that often lead to that stubborn post pregnancy weight that many find difficult to shed once the bundle of joy has made its introduction to the world. Many women take advantage of pregnancy as a time to over indulge in eating for the sake of the baby, but maintaining a healthy diet and a daily routine of targeted movement will help keep those extra craving pounds in check.

Being active while pregnant can help with battling the bulge, as well as with maintaining overall health for mother and baby. Fitness during pregnancy is acceptable and encouraged in moderation and should be on every mommy-to-be’s list of daily activity.  Here are just a few ways that working out during pregnancy can be beneficial.

Improves mood

Working out causes a release of feel-good chemicals called endorphins that can give you a feeling of a natural high. Get your body into motion and begin to improve your mood by diminishing anxiety and worry.

Makes a healthy baby

Research shows that babies of mommies who exercise during pregnancy are born at healthier weights, are better able to weather labor and delivery and recover more quickly from the stresses of birth.
