Staying physically active while pregnant can be tricky. Your newly large belly can create all sorts of challenges that make the notion of working out seem especially unappealing, not to mention the (mostly unfounded) fear that strenuous exercise could do harm to the baby.  However, these hurdles shouldn’t prevent you from keeping up a stretching and strengthening routine during your pregnancy. In fact, it’s extra important to stay in shape during your pregnancy, both for the health of your baby and to prepare your body for labor.

In this video, Diana from Wellness Today takes you through a stretching and strengthening sequence that’s perfect for any stage of pregnancy. It targets all the muscle groups that are so essential during pregnancy, releasing tension, increasing flexibility, strengthening muscles, and building endurance. It’s perfect to fit in at the beginning of the day or in the evening, and is guaranteed to leave you feeling relaxed and invigorated!
