Walking is a great way to move during pregnancy. Here are 6 Amazing Benefits to walking:

  1. 1.It keeps your heart strong and your muscles toned. “A stronger mom will have an easier time meeting the demands of motherhood,” says Liz Neporent, an exercise physiologist, personal trainer, and author of Fitness Walking for Dummies (IDG).

  2. 2.It may help you have a shorter, easier labor.

  3. 3.It burns calories, which helps prevent excess weight gain.

  4. 4.It keeps your body fit, which offers protection from gestational diabetes and preeclampsia.

  5. 5.It eases constipation.

  6. 6.You’ll have an easier time exercising after you have the baby, “because you’ll already have an exercise routine in place,” says Debbie Rocker, a personal trainer and fitness expert, who specializes in walking workouts.

  7. Anyone can do it, “and it’s something you can do just for yourself before you have to focus on your baby,” Neporent says.

So lace up those sneakers, put on your Mumberry gear, and have a great walk!
