Expecting Fitness: Exercise for Pregnancy
Current research has proven that it is not only safe for pregnant women to exercise, it is absolutely beneficial. Even if you are considered a high-risk pregnancy or are restricted to bed rest, you can and should exercise during this crucial time. This book includes specially designed exercises just for you.
Among the benefits of exercise and proper nutrition during pregnancy:
-Shorter, less painful labor
-Fewer birth defects
-Less excess weight gain
-Ease of regaining pre-pregnancy figure
-Healthier, calmer, and more intelligent babies
Birgitta Gallo's Expecting Fitness doesn't lead you through some leg lifts. It shows you how to modify your current sports activities-including tennis, golf, aerobics, swimming, even kickboxing-safely throughout your pregnancy. It also includes nutritional guidelines, relaxation and breathing techniques, and an illustrated guide to the changes the pregnant body goes through. It is a unique and comprehensive guide for any woman who wants to give her baby the best possible start in life.
