Is it safe to exercise during
your pregnancy? This book provides the answers you’ve been looking
for—information you need to remain active and healthy before, during, and
after your pregnancy.
In this second edition of Exercising
through Your Pregnancy, internationally recognized maternal exercise
researcher and obstetrician, James Clapp, III, M.D., and pre- and postnatal
fitness expert Catherine Cram, M.S., lay out the research showing that exercise
during and after pregnancy can provide far-ranging benefits to mother and baby.
Among the many questions the authors answer about exercise and pregnancy:
How does exercise benefit
How does exercise affect
growth of the fetus?
Does exercise limit
weight gain during pregnancy?
What is the right amount
When should exercise be
How late into pregnancy
can you exercise?
What is the effect of
exercise on milk production?
When can a new mother
resume exercising after giving birth?
A comprehensive text for
anyone who works with prenatal and postpartum women. The authors provide an
excellent review of literature concerning the effects of exercise on all phases
of pregnancy. They also address misconceptions and recommend fitness guidelines.
