Many more women now participate in all types of exercise and during pregnancy often want to continue to work out and keep fit. As a result of pregnancy many women have a lot of questions and concerns about exercises and what is safe for their baby. Even these days, women are often given conflicting advice and are left unsure or confused over exactly what exercise they can or cannot do. Pregnancy and Exercise is written for the expectant mother and will: - answer any questions women might have - educate mums to be about the changes happening to them during pregnancy and how these relate to exercises - take out the guess work to allow pregnant women to make informed decisions - give women the confidence to exercise through their pregnancy, to make them stronger for birth and fit enough to cope with a demanding baby.
