addition to the regular benefits of exercise, pregnant women who exercise are
likely to return to their pre-pregnancy shapes sooner, feel increased energy,
and fend of stress more readily. According to James F. Clapp, M.D., and Catherine Cram, M.S., authors of Exercising
Through Your Pregnancy women
can exercise before, during, after their pregnancies. "Some women fear that
exercise will increase the risk of miscarriage, malformations, pre-term labor,
brain damage to the baby, or material injury, but this is not the case."
according to Dr. Clapp's research, women who exercise feel better, perform
better, and have babies that are be stronger physiologically and perhaps better
developed neurologically. Among the questions he answers:
How does exercise benefit
How does exercise affect
growth of the fetus?
What is the effect of
exercise on milk production?
Does exercise limit
weight gain during pregnancy?
What is the right amount
What are the dos and
don'ts of exercising when pregnant?
When should exercise be
How late into pregnancy
can you exercise?
be the exercise regimen after giving birth?
Dr. Clapp provides guidelines for exercise plans that safely fulfill a
mother's needs during different phases of pregnancy.
