So many people believe that you should be sedentary during pregnancy but quite the contrary. Exercise will help you stay in shape and most importantly prepare you for labor and delivery. Exercise has been known to ease or prevent common pregnancy discomforts such as back pain and fatigue. It certainly will assist in preventing too much weight gain. Exercise also has been known to decrease the risk of postpartum depression.
The sooner one begins prenatal care, the healthier they and the baby will be. Even if you have been pregnant before and had a healthy baby, skipping prenatal care can truly be dangerous to both a woman and her baby. So even if you haven’t started prenatal care, it is not too late to begin.
