TIPS TO STAY ACTIVE DURING PREGNANCY

If you have a busy schedule and unable to dedicate time to go to a fitness class you can consider
  • Taking stairs & walking to the corner store for groceries
  • Have walking meetings with your colleagues & walking chat sessions with friends
  • There are lots of on-line videos for yoga & exercise that you can follow in the comfort of your home. If you feel dizzy or uncomfortable, stop immediately and ask for help
  • Walk around the neighbourhood mall. It can be fun and still keeps the blood pumping
  • Try and find a pregnancy buddy in your neighbourhood so the both of you can stay motivated
When you are out on your fitness regime, you don’t have to look frumpy just because you are pregnant. Wearing your husband’s over-sized tee will not make you feel as beautiful as you are. Invest in good maternity wear as they will come a long way during your pregnancy & motherhood phase. 
You can shop from Morph's extensive range of maternity wear.
