This week, Michael Dermanski is joined by physiotherapist Justine Gorman to look at the benefits of exercise while pregnant. 

Just like for the general population, the heart and respiratory benefits of exercising while pregnant make it a highly beneficial activity. There are also many specific benefits achieved by exercising while pregnant, including reducing the risk of developing gestational diabetes, high blood pressure and pre-eclampsia. It may also help reduce the need for instrumental delivery.

Among other topics, Justine and Michael also explore the role strength training plays in facilitating a happy, healthy pregnancy and delivery.
