You’re pregnant and you would like to avoid excessive obesity, but you’re not a gym and exercise fan? Here’s one great idea for you! Dance!
DRESSING during pregnancy
Is dancing in pregnancy safe?
Dancing in pregnancy is recommended! Many studies have shown that light dance positively affects your baby!
Why is it good to dance?
The dance keeps you slim and fit, stronger your muscles, lungs and heart, and best of all, it’s fun!
During the pregnancy, the blood circulates slower through your body, and the dance slowly accelerates the heart rhythm, as well as the circulation itself, and the blood goes faster to your baby. Numerous studies say that light dance with your favorite music will reduce stress and fatigue, positively affect your mood, and therefore your baby will enjoy 🙂
Women while pregnant go through hormonal changes. Some women experience less, and some major oscillations in the mood and irritability. Dance can help you get rid of tension and feel better!
Experts say it’s good for you and the baby to dance every day for 10 minutes or if you want this to be a type of training, feel free to insert 3 times a week for 30 minutes of dance in your schedule.
Dance, but take care of the following things
It is advisable to dance in pregnancy, but like all that you do while expecting, there must be a certain amount of caution. It is advised to avoid sudden movements and jumps. Also, you should avoid turning and rotating in a circle so as not to lose balance and fall down, and quick movements of the hips as you can hurt the same as your back. Your body is preparing for labor and the pelvis is expanding as the ligaments in the hips and back will be particularly sensitive, so be careful as you can strain.
Dances that can be enjoyed include samba, salsa, jazz dance, and ball dance, while something like pole dance, hip-hop, and dances including jumping, fast and sudden movements are advised to avoid.

As pregnancy gets bigger, your legs can swell, you can become more tired, and it may happen that you can not make some moves like before. It’s all normal and do not force yourself to do something that does not make you feel good. Because of the weight increase, your wrists can be painful and take care of the injuries. Make sure you warm up before you dance!
If you are breathless, it’s a sign that you and your baby lack oxygen, so make a break.
We will note that every pregnant woman, like any pregnancy, is different, so that some women can enjoy certain types of dance, while some may not. Do everything you like and enjoy pregnancy! 🙂
Important! Consult your doctor as some pregnant women are not advised to do this type of activity.
