Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an opportune time to improve lifestyle habits. The decision to include physical activity during this period is a the first step towards a permanent healthier lifestyle for you and your baby!

 
 

How Important is Exercise for Pregnancy?

Staying active and exercising appropriately during pregnancy can help alleviate many common pregnancy symptoms such as backaches, leg cramps, constipation, bloating, and swelling.

Exercise can improve sleep, mood and energy level, prevents excessive maternal weight gain, and reduces the risks of pregnancy induced hypertension, cardiovascular disease and gestational diabetes.

Finally, exercise during pregnancy can help you cope with labor, recover better postpartum, reduce postpartum depression and foster an active lifestyle with baby in tow!


Safe Exercise for Pregnancy

If you have a healthy and low-risk pregnancy, exercise is safe for both mom and baby. However, each trimester can present different challenges and discomforts, thus special consideration must be made when exercising to address the many physiological changes that occur during pregnancy.

The safety of you and your baby is our top priority, as such, our Kinesiologist adheres to the exercise prescription recommendations in the PARmed-X for Pregnancy, and follows the joint CSEP/SOGC Clinical Guideline for Exercise during Pregnancy and the Postpartum Period.


Prepare to Push

Pregnancy and childbirth are akin to running a marathon. They are both very physically demanding, and the aftermath of these events often include injuries. Pregnancy and delivery can have a significant and long-lasting impact on the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles.  When the function of these muscles is affected, injuries such as diastasis recti and pelvic floor dysfunction can result.

By respecting the different fitness training needs of each trimester and by following the fitness principle of specificity, you can prepare to push so you can have the strength and endurance for birth, and reduce your risk of developing diastasis recti and pelvic floor dysfunction.


Pregnancy Programs

Our Kinesiologist possesses up-to-date knowledge to provide appropriate recommendations for exercise prescription for all stages of your pregnancy.  Whether you are a beginner or an athlete, we can meet your fitness needs.

 
 

Achieve an active lifestyle to support your health and the health of your developing baby.
