Exercise Can Prevent Gestational Diabetes

July 14, 2015

According to research appearing in BJOG: an International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, women who exercise during pregnancy are less likely to have gestational diabetes, and the exercise also helps to reduce maternal weight gain.

"Gestational diabetes is one of the most frequent complications of pregnancy. It is associated with an increased risk of serious disorders such as pre-eclampsia, hypertension, preterm birth, and with induced or caesarean birth."

Women who gain more weight than is recommended during pregnancy are also less likely to lose the excess weight after the baby is born.

Make sure to check with your obstetrician before starting any program. See American Council on Exercise: aand here for exercises:
