Spanish scientists have found an effective way to facilitate generic activity. They offer women throughout their pregnancy to perform moderate exercise. This will not only facilitate labor, but also make it possible to eliminate eipidural anesthesia.
508 healthy pregnant women participated in clinical trials. Participants were divided into two groups. The first consisted of 255 people who, during the whole pregnancy, did moderate exercise, and the second group was the control group.
At the end of the research, scientists compared the results. So, it was found that those women who played sports, gave birth to a child faster. They needed epidural anesthesia much less frequently. It was also found that those who entered the control group were more likely to have children weighing above the norm.
Based on the foregoing, the following conclusions can be made – moderate exercise is beneficial at any age and in any condition. However, taking into account the position of the woman, the schedule of classes, as well as the nature of the exercises, only a specialist should paint. Otherwise, undesirable complications may develop for both the expectant mother and the baby.
