Exercise when Expecting Twins and Seeing an Obstetrician Melbourne

 

Regular exercise during pregnancy has many benefits, such as helping you stay healthy and feel your best. It can also improve posture, decrease discomfort from backaches, and alleviate fatigue. Physical activity may also contribute to preventing gestational diabetes, relieve stress, and boost your stamina (which you'll need for labour and delivery). If you exercised regularly before you became pregnant, you should be able to continue exercising in moderation. Focus on low-impact exercises and only do what’s comfortable.

 

If you weren't physically active before, it might be safe to start an exercise program during pregnancy, mainly walking or something equally gentle. Whether you are pregnant with one baby or twins, your obstetrician in Melbourne is the best person to give you advice about working out during your pregnancy.

 

There are certain situations in which exercise during pregnancy may not be a good idea. Women with medical problems such as asthma, high blood pressure, or heart disease might want to avoid exercise or limit it, as well as women experiencing spotting or bleeding, low placenta, history of early labour, history of miscarriage, or a weak cervix. Ask your obstetrician what amount of exercise, if any, is right for you.

 

Most exercises can be performed safely during pregnancy as long as you apply moderation. Walking, swimming, stationary cycling, and elliptical machines generally carry little risk of injury, can be continued throughout your entire pregnancy, and have significant benefits for your whole body. Keep in mind that you may find it harder to exercise with your faster-growing belly if you are pregnant with twins. Your obstetrician in Melbourne can discuss safe exercise options with you.
