Mummy Movement: A Guide to Keeping Fit, Feeling Well, and Living Well as an Expectant Mother.

Pregnancy is a special time for expectant mothers. It’s a time of physical and emotional changes that can be both exciting and overwhelming. The mummy movement is a growing trend that encourages expectant mothers to stay active and engaged in their health during pregnancy. It emphasizes the importance of keeping fit physically and mentally by engaging in activities such as exercising, eating healthy, and focusing on stress relief.

Exercise during pregnancy has many benefits for both mother and baby.

Regular physical activity can help improve mood, increase energy levels, reduce the risk of pregnancy-related complications, improve sleep, and reduce the risk of postpartum depression. Here are some tips for keeping fit, feeling well, and living well when pregnant.

Feeling Well When Pregnant

It is important for pregnant women to practice stress relief techniques in order to remain healthy and feel well. Examples of stress relief techniques include yoga, pilates, meditation, deep breathing exercises, and journaling.

Eating healthy is also important for pregnant women in order to ensure that they are getting all the necessary nutrients they need for their baby’s development. Healthy eating habits include consuming a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. It is recommended that pregnant women drink 8-10 glasses of water per day.

Additionally, getting enough rest is important for pregnant women in order to ensure that their body has enough time to rest and recover from the physical demands of pregnancy. It is recommended that pregnant women get 7-9 hours of sleep per night.

Putting Yourself First When You Are a Mum

Expecting or not, making time for yourself is important for everyone, it's important to ensure that mothers are taking care of their own needs first.

Examples of activities that mums can do for themselves include going out with friends, taking up a hobby, or indulging in self-care practices such as getting a massage or taking a pregnancy pilates class.

Having a strong support system is also essential for mums in order to ensure that they are taking care of their own needs first. Mums should seek out supportive friends and family members who can provide emotional support when needed. Exercise groups are a great place to find a community of supportive women.

Finding a balance between work, parenting, and self-care is important for mums in order to ensure that they are taking care of their own needs first. This includes making sure to get enough sleep and carving out time for oneself to move intentionally on a regular basis.

Happy mothers day weekend to all the mums-to-be, all the mums that have been & we are sending love and kindness to those in our community that have lost a loved one, young or old on this sometimes difficult weekend.

Keep moving forward.

All our love,

Pilates Class Team
