The benefits of staying active during and active pregnancy
There are so many benefits to exercising during pregnancy. Gentle activity can help with some of the side effects you may be experiencing such as pelvic pain, back ache, cramps and swollen feet. It can even help you sleep better. For support, download our handout.
