Diet and Exercise [Ayurvedic]

Exercise During Pregnancy Supports Your Baby’s Development:

When you exercise regularly while pregnant, your baby’s cells use the physiological messages from your body to develop stronger body systems, which will better equip your baby to meet physical demands after birth. Physical activity during pregnancy can provide the following five benefits for your developing baby in the womb and after birth.

Healthier Cardiovascular System :

Regular exercise while pregnant can help your baby’s circulatory system work more efficiently. One study showed that exercise during pregnancy can have long-term benefits for a baby’s vascular function and health. Exercise can develop your baby’s vascular system flexibility, which reduces how hard the heart has to work to pump blood throughout the body.

Your physical activity can also reduce your baby’s heart rate and increase heart rate variability. This means your baby’s heart is developing to function in a way that is similar to your healthy and physically active heart. When the heart is conditioned, it does not have to work as hard to deliver blood throughout the body, and the heart rate is lower during times of rest.

Improved Breathing Movements :

Your exercise can help increase your baby’s fetal breathing movements. These breathing movements support the development and functionality of the respiratory system and the central nervous system.

Increased Vagal Nerve Control :

As mentioned, physical activity increases fetal breathing movements—and, in turn, fetal breathing movements can enhance vagal function. The vagus nerve is the longest cranial nerve. Stemming from the brain and passing through the neck, thorax, and abdomen, the vagus nerve is responsible for many motor and sensory jobs—such as swallowing and involuntary muscle control of the heart, lungs, esophagus, and glands of the digestive tract. It is very important to your baby’s health.

Better Communication Within the Central Nervous System :

In utero, your baby develops 8,000 new brain cells every second. When you exercise, your baby’s brain activity increases and the brain develops more quickly. This results in more communication between the brain cells, nerves, and nerve endings throughout the brain and body.

Enhanced Growth :

Physical activity has been shown to increase the placenta’s ability to deliver blood to your baby—which means more oxygen and nutrients will be passed to your baby to help enhance growth.
