Just 30 minutes of walking each day helps keep a pregnant woman and her growing baby healthy. Did you know that 150 minutes of walking each week has loads of benefits for pregnant mums? And it doesn’t even have to be in one go! Being active during pregnancy means a woman is more likely to maintain a healthier weight and be able to cope better with the physical demands of pregnancy and labour. It also reduces the risk of miscarriage, stillbirth, birth defects and diabetes. It can also prevent gestational diabetes, which makes a baby grow too big in pregnancy, and can lead to delivery complications and low blood sugar. Being active can also prevent a woman from getting high blood pressure, which can result in a stillbirth. 150 minutes of walking a week makes it easier for a woman to get back to normal weight after the baby is born. It can also give a woman more energy, help her sleep better, and reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and depression.
