Exercise is now considered an important part of a healthy pregnancy and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends 30 minutes or more of moderate exercise daily. Your second trimester, the feel good trimester, is a great time to make regular exercise a priority -- especially if you struggled to get moving during your first trimester due to morning sickness or exhaustion. So what exercises are safe during pregnancy? We compiled a list of the best workouts for pregnant moms with the help of Jenny Skoog, a New York City-based pre- and post-natal fitness trainer and DONA International Trained Doula. Of course, before you begin any exercise program, especially during pregnancy, you should consult with your doctor first. Exercise during pregnancy has plenty of benefits too -- it can give you a boost of energy, help you sleep better, reduce stress and even make labor and delivery easier. So what are you waiting for? Get moving!
