Exercising is one of the best things a woman can do for her body while she’s pregnant. There are many different types of prenatal exercise routines that are beneficial as your body goes through the extreme changes brought on by pregnancy.

Aerobic exercising and strength training exercises are great ways to keep your muscles strong and your body feeling good.

Walking is a great way to stay active safely throughout your pregnancy. It’s one of the best cardiovascular exercises you can do, and it only requires 20–30 minutes daily.

Kegel Exercises help strengthen the muscles that support the bladder, uterus, and bowels. Strengthening these muscles helps a woman in labor to relax. This method involves contracting those specific muscles repeatedly to build strength. They should be done daily, in sets of five.

Tailor Exercises strengthen the pelvic, hip, and thigh muscles. These exercises are also great for relieving lower back pain, especially during labor.
