Baby Momma’s here is the latest research about exercise and your pregnancy. The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism just published a study that reveals that exercise has a positive impact on your pregnancy and your baby’s health as an adult. The study concluded that performing moderate exercise on a regular basis during pregnancy has an impact on the size of the developing baby. Moderate exercise regularly during pregnancy can prevent the development of an oversized infant. This is important because studies have shown that overweight babies have a tendency to become overweight adults. It’s time to put those athletic shoes on and get moving your health and your baby’s health depend on it. Remember, exercise is a great way to have a healthy pregnancy naturally!
