What are the best workouts for pregnant women?
With my wife pregnant right now, she needs ways to keep herself active without overdoing it. Sure, it's much easier to avoid working out while pregnant. After all, your body is under intense pressure as it is -- and it's exhausting!
However, she feels it's important to try and stay as fit as possible. It makes her feel better about herself, it's good for the baby, and it helps her to be able to lose weight faster postpartum.
So, I wanted to share the workouts she found as examples of things all women can try. I asked her to do the research to see if these are viable options.
Try them all and see what works for you!
