Fit While Pregnant EOH

Posted: Updated:

Realizing that it is important for pregnant woman to remain active, the YMCA is offering a new class called "Fit Pregnancy."

As Carla Burbidge tells us in this week's Eye on Health, exercise can be beneficial for mothers-to-be.

Meeting once a week, an exercise class designed just for expectant Moms. During the 9 months of pregnancy, the body undergoes so many changes. The YMCA has adapted exercises for all stages of pregnancy.

Lindsey Borgeson, Mom to Be "its a great way to feel better about yourself, it helps with the aches and pains of pregnancy"

Courtney Killian, Instructor, we hoping to grow and create a community of pregnant women and that they will stay healthy afterwards"

Before enrolling in the class, a pregnant woman is advised to check with her doctor.

But if there are no problems, moderate exercise a good thing. Being fit helps a woman feel good about her growing body, reduces stress, and prepares her for the challenges of childbirth.

Courtney Killian "it helps with recovery and also woman have a less chance of depression or the baby blues"

Lindsey "we leave feeling great, and just excited about being pregnant"

On this day the class was pretty small, but then again participants change often, as delivery dates arrive.

What's more important than creating a new life, the YMCA hopes they can play a role in helping moms to be stay healthy.

For Eye on Health I'm Carla Burbidge
