In todays episode, Bump Plan Founder Hollie Grant looks into everything you need to know about first trimester exercise. If you are pregnant for the first time, the first trimester is a time of great change in the body. This can leave many women feeling confused as to how they can continue to move their body safely during this time.
However, first trimester exercise can have profound physical and mental health benefits. It can also helping your body prepare for the demands of labour and parenting.
Therefore, in this episode about first trimester exercise Hollie will be talking you through:
► The vast physical and mental health benefits to staying active during pregnancy
► The current guidelines for physical activity from the UK Chief Medical Officer, and what that means for you
► Defining ‘Physical Activity During Pregnancy’
► How to approach physical activity in pregnancy if you weren’t active prior to pregnancy
► What to prioritise in first trimester exercise, and
► How that can be affected by some of the most common pregnancy symptoms
I hope this episode helps you if you are currently in Trimester 1 and wondering how to move your body safely during this time.
