The Pregnant Athlete: How to Stay in Your Best Shape Ever–Before, During, and After Pregnancy

We rated this book:


Whether a seasoned competitor or someone who simply can’t live without their morning workout, one of the most frustrating things about becoming pregnant is being told that you need to cut back on exercise. But the truth is that being pregnant does not mean you are suddenly allowed only walking and yoga. Most exercise routines can be safely continued during a healthy pregnancy, and The Pregnant Athlete will give you all of the information you need to keep training safely. With a month-by-month guide that discusses things you might be feeling, how your diet should change, and how your growing bump may affect your ability to do different activities, this book will inform you so that you can keep doing what you love (and defend your ability to do so to well-meaning friends and relatives). Brandi Dion stayed active through two pregnancies and has done lots of research on the subject. Her husband co-authors the book and contributes insight and important information. Rounding out the team is Joel Heller, an obstetrician who knows how much regular physical activity can benefit a woman during pregnancy, labor, and recovery after birth. This book is an amazing resource for any woman who wants to remain active during her pregnancy.
