Your Ultimate Online Resource for Parenting in Charlotte, North Carolina


It is vitally important for an expecting mother to stay in shape. Giving birth requires a tremendous amount of physical stamina. Regular exercise will help your body prepare for labor while reducing stress levels, relieving some physiological discomforts, keeping your weight gain steady, and improving your night's sleep.

If your pregnancy is proceeding normally you can probably continue working out with some modifications. Talk to your doctor or midwife about your fitness routine to make sure your activities don't put you or your baby at risk for injury.

Most common types of prenatal exercise are walking, riding a stationary bike, swimming and prenatal yoga. See some options in Charlotte area below:
