Expert Opinions

ADAM KUJAWA, M.D.

Head of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department

Sw. Rodzina Hospital in Poznan

Physical activity during and after pregnancy is crucial to maintaining health and physical and mental fitness. Being active during pregnancy is, in my opinion, more important than a balanced diet. It affects the proper functioning of a pregnant woman’s body which translates into the proper development of the fetus. Pregnant woman’s good metabolism is necessary for the development of a healthy fetus. It impacts the development of the fetus, the newborn and later the child. More and more often the fetal stage and mechanisms taking place during pregnancy are said to have an influence on human development throughout the whole life. Therefore, the diet and physical activity during pregnancy have an impact on the offspring’s entire life. The child’s health, proper development and life until old age depend on the mother. Postpartum, physical activity and healthy diet support and determine the mother’s physical and mental wellbeing. They help stay fit and happy and, as a result, fully satisfied with motherhood. I recommend physical activity and participation in fitness classes to all pregnant and postpartum patients. I see no contraindications. Exercising during and after pregnancy is essential for physical and mental health of the pregnant woman, the mother, and the child.

Physical activity, if not contraindicated by the gynecologist (it’s also good to consult a urogynecology physiotherapist), is the best way to actively prepare for labor and build body awareness. By adjusting physical activity to the stage of pregnancy, you can prevent pain, excessive weight gain, support the pelvic floor, and, in the third trimester, consciously prepare your body for labor. In that way, you increase the chances of avoiding labor complications and learn how to actively bring your child to the world. Mothers who stay physically active during pregnancy feel better in the postnatal period. Being active benefits the baby too. Proper blood and lymph circulation provides oxygen and nutrients and increases the level of endorphins. After birth, as long as the mother gets the green light from her doctor, returning to pre-pregnancy activity or starting an adventure with increased physical activity will allow for a gradual return to fitness, improve body stability and physical performance, facilitate weight loss, improve intestinal motility, activate pelvic floor muscles, and increase energy levels.

Physical activity during pregnancy as well as after birth has many benefits. It improves physical performance and breath awareness, which are important during labor, has a positive effect on the circulatory system, and helps maintain healthy body weight. It supports physical and mental wellbeing. What’s important, the classes offered by Gibka Mama include pelvic floor exercises. Physical activity is recommended for all pregnant women, unless contraindicated by their doctor. After labor (and after the postnatal period), it’s good to return to physical activity too. Movement improves wellbeing and the hormones produced while exercising not only increase body efficiency, but also have a positive effect on the mood. It’s best to attend professional classes dedicated for women during and after pregnancy. From my own experience, I strongly recommend classes offered by Gibka Mama which I attended myself when I was pregnant. Despite a growing belly, every class gave me a lot of energy, an endorphin boost, and a great mood.
