Cesarean Risk Greatly Reduced Due To Pregnancy Exercise



The moment you learn that you are pregnant, the first silent prayer from your soul, would be for a safe delivery of a healthy offspring. Healthy food, proper exercise and a cheerful countenance greatly help in your prayer being answered.

Exercise during pregnancy

Scientists say that pregnant women who exercise can significantly lower the risk of cesarean sections and giving birth to large babies. They found that women who exercised had a 31% reduced risk of having a large baby at birth, and chances of a cesarean section was reduced to 20%

Wise words for pregnant women

Iron supplements on a daily basis during pregnancy decreases the risk of low birth weight babies.

Obesity and being overweight can increase the risk of having preterm babies and greater risk of infant death. The key to healthy pregnancy would be to achieve a healthy weight range before your pregnancy.

But the good news is that researchers say that, it is safe for obese moms to be to lose weight during pregnancy. But before you try anything have a word with your doctor.

Maintain proper oral hygiene during pregnancy, because the bacteria from the mother’s mouth could travel through the blood to amniotic fluid and can affect the baby, causing preterm birth, low birth weight, infection and premature onset of contractions.

Aim for a stress free, relaxed and happy pregnancy with proper diet, good rest and regular exercise.

To give you an idea of pregnancy exercise I have attached a YouTube video. Have a word with your doctor before you start any exercise.


Take care,
