  • I was pretty active before pregnacy but I had extreme fatigue during the first trimester so all I was doing was sleeping on my free time. I was hoping to start taking walks and maybe some prenatal exercise classes when I feel a little more energized. But the last couple of weeks, I have been trying to be more active and I find that I'm prone to muscle cramps and my fitness level has gone down significantly.

    The doctors recommend to keep on staying active if you are used to working out before pregnancy but I found out that I turned into a total couch potato. And I don't know how to bounce back

  • If there are no pregnancy complications then I would say that the best exercise is prenatal yoga. Prenatal yoga has a lot of health benefits. As baby grows within the body, more energy and strength is needed to be able to carry the weight. Prenatal yoga strengthens our hips, back, arms and shoulders. It calms the nervous system and increases the blood circulation, creating a healthy environment for a thriving baby. Just refer the article given below to know more about Prenatal Yoga: https://www.newmummycompany.ca/servi...prenatal-yoga/

    Please keep in mind to consult the doctor prior to starting any new exercise regime.

    Try to be active, be engaged. Happy delivery
