We’ve rounded up the top prenatal fitness studios and classes in Singers to help you build that bump and a healthy, glowing mama.
Exercise is more important than ever in your second and third trimesters. Mamas need strong cores and backs to help support the weight of our ever-growing baby bumps. If you feel like you’re too tired all the time, remember that exercise gives you more energy! Keeping fit makes it easier to deliver, recover, and even prevents pregnancy complications like gestational diabetes and postpartum depression. Remember to keep hydrated all the time and listen to your body! We’ve found some of the best ways to stay in shape during your pregnancy in Singapore.
