Sturdy Memorial Hospital Offering Prenatal Exercise to Expectant Mothers
Attleboro, MA, June 13, 2019 -- The Wellness Exercise Program at Sturdy Memorial Hospital is now offering prenatal exercise to expectant mothers. Exercise during pregnancy can help ease some of the common discomforts women experience during pregnancy.
According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), exercising while pregnant can help reduce backaches, may decrease risk of gestational diabetes, and promotes healthy weight gain during pregnancy. In addition, exercising while pregnant can help to improve endurance and strength, preparing you for labor and delivery.
Sturdy’s Prenatal Exercise Program is a 16- session program that includes resistance and aerobic training, pelvic floor strengthening exercises, as well as education about prenatal health and wellness. Grants are available to those who qualify. Our exercise physiologists are medically trained and will monitor you during your workouts to help you stay healthy and active during your pregnancy.
