Tessa Romero, a pre and postnatal specialist, comes on the podcast today to discuss all things pregnancy and fitness related.  She is a strong believer that pregnancy is one of the most important times
to focus on health and nutrition. If you are pregnant, or planning on getting pregnant, this episode has a lot of great tips for making the most of those 9 months.

 

Highlights

  • People experience pregnancy in such a wide variety.
  • The more common mistake is sitting on one extreme or the other. Either not exercising at all, and  using pregnancy as a time to take a break; OR going all out and not acknowledging your abdomen and pelvic floor.
  • It is important to find a happy medium.
  • Pregnancy is a good time for maintenance
  • Know yourself, know where you are on the continuum.
  • Pregnancy is not a good time to kick your feet up. It is a good time to focus on health and nutrition
  • A good labor, delivery, and recovery comes from what you do during those 9 months of pregnancy.

Take away:

People experience pregnancy in such a wide variety. Find what type of movement helps you feel your best mentally and physically and stick with it.
