Nurturing moms in the Columbus, OH & surrounding area

Is it safe to work out in pregnancy? What kind of exercises can I do?  How often should I work out? These questions, and more, usually always come up during pregnancy. We want to make sure we're doing whatever is safe for our baby and our bodies. It's normal to  be  hesitant to workout, especially later in pregnancy!

  Exercise in pregnancy is safe, healthy, and recommended. Research has shown that exercise during pregnancy:

  • Increases metabolic capacity, insulin sensitivity, muscle mass, and the use of fat stores to supply energy requirements

  • Provides an extended margin of safety for the baby

  • Can stimulate better than average placental growth and functional capacity 

  • Can help the baby tolerate stresses of late pregnancy, labor, and delivery better than those whose mothers don't work out

  • reduces weight gain

  • helps a mother retain less fat, feel better, have shorter, less complicated labors

  • can shorten recovery 

  • reduces backache, constipation, bloating, and swelling

  • can reduce the risk and severity of gestational diabetes 

Even knowing all of these benefits, it can still be hard to figure out how to safely fit exercise into our pregnancy. I am available to help you figure out exactly how to do this! I will take the worry out of trying to figure out how to incorporate exercise to keep you healthy during pregnancy. I am all about creating effective workouts that can be done from the comfort of your own home, on your own time. Let me tailor a workout just for you and your baby! 

But what happens after you've had the baby? When should you begin exercise again? Let me help you figure out how to fit your exercise routine back into your life, while keeping your sanity! Not only that, but you can combine this service with nutrition services to get healthier all around.
