Sports occupations are capable to work wonders - to increase mood, to struggle with a depression, to do a body elastic and beautiful. Think, all this will come to you during pregnancy not as end in itself, and as pleasant addition to those functional occupations with special gymnastics which to you are recommended by doctors that the organism of future mother could be prepared for childbirth it is easy to transfer them and quickly after them to be restored. Even if in a “doberemenny“ state on sports occupations you had neither time, nor forces, then now it is desirable for you to find such opportunity. At the same time it is good if physical exercise become for you not only a duty, but also pleasure.

Why it is necessary?

So what effect, besides well-known increases of a tone, the gymnastics for pregnant women is capable to give all?

Regular exercises during pregnancy allow to reach a number of results, useful to future mother:

Why and how it occurs? The matter is that during pregnancy very important is a training of three muscular groups - muscles of a back, a basin and a stomach.

In - the first, strengthening of muscles of a stomach promotes performance of their function on maintenance of the growing fruit and the increasing uterus. Besides, it promotes more effective attempts - any reductions of muscles of a stomach and muscles of a pelvic bottom thanks to which the kid is born. Attempts are necessary at the end of childbirth and in many respects depend on physical capacities of muscles of a stomach.

In - the second, strengthening of muscles of a basin and a crotch will allow to avoid the problems connected with an urine incontience which sometimes develops after the delivery.

B - the third, strengthening of muscles of a back improves a bearing and reduces tension in a waist, promotes prevention of pains in a waist.

B - the fourth, the exercises training and developing diafragmalny breath allow to breathe correctly during fights thanks to what mother and the kid optimum transfer this period of childbirth.

Agree, for the sake of such achievements it is worth finding for simple gymnastics a little time.

in What the gymnastics for pregnant women differs from just gymnastics in



to achieve the effect described above, specially developed a gymnastics technique for pregnant women. In selection of exercises the attention to preparation of this or that group of muscles is paid, and also for the term of pregnancy because in each of trimesters of the purpose of gymnastic exercises differ, and physiological changes dictate the rules of conduct. Doctors and experts in physiotherapy exercises made sets of exercises for women with various terms of pregnancy: to 16 weeks, from 16 to 24, from 24 to 32, from 32 to 36 weeks, and also during the periods of the second - the third, fourth - the fifth and sixth - the seventh weeks after the delivery.

In the first trimester it is the best of all for p to learn methods of relaxation and respiratory gymnastics. Despite the lack of a stomach, loadings should not be intensive: the first trimester abounds with critical terms on pregnancy interruption threat. In the second trimester it is expedient to strong to be engaged in strengthening of muscles of a pelvic bottom and abdominal tension. In the third the set of exercises is directed to reduction of venous stagnation, increase of mobility of joints, stimulation of activity of intestines.

we will give several exercises useful As an example in every respect at different stages of pregnancy. It is “classics“ of gymnastic complexes for pregnant women - Kegel`s exercise and “Kitty“.

Hold muscles in such provision of 10 seconds, without holding at the same time the breath, then slowly relax muscles. Begin with 5 times, gradually finish the number of repetitions to 10. Carry out exercise two - three times a day.

“Kitty“ strengthens muscles of a stomach and facilitates load of a backbone. Get up on all fours, having leaned on palms and knees. On a breath lower a back down, not strongly bending it in a waist, you hold the head neutrally. Then, after an exhalation, come back to a starting position: hang the head, curve a back up, pull in a stomach.

These exercises help the separation of hips and a basin necessary at the time of delivery:

of Squat . Lean a back against a wall, begin to squat, slowly bending legs in knees and slightly raising heels from a floor. The squat has to be the deepest what only you can execute, without tearing off a back from a wall. Be late in this situation 1 minute, you breathe deeply and weaken a basin. To rise back, using a support.
