4 Benefits of Walking for Pregnant Women



Based on data from the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2015, there were 803 deaths of pregnant women every day. Surprisingly, 99 percent of them occur in developing countries, and Indonesia is one of them. Part of the reason is the condition of an unhealthy pregnancy. Well, this can be prevented by walking.

Benefits of walking during pregnancy At gestational age, pregnant women may not be advised to carry out activities that are too heavy. However, moving the body is also highly recommended to maintain the health of the mother and fetus. The following are the benefits of walking, as reported by the health site Babyologist:


1. Reducing the risk of miscarriage Walk in the morning, or in an environment that is protected from air pollution. The oxygen you breathe will flow to the baby's placenta, which supports fetal growth and is also useful for strengthening the uterus. Questioning when is the right time to walk, explained by Dr. Anita amalia Sari told KlikDokter, "Walking in pregnancy in the last trimester can actually be done at any time, not necessarily in the morning. The most important thing is that you feel happy and comfortable doing it. " Reporting from the Pregnancy website, walking also increases circulation of overall blood flow and strengthens the muscles used during pregnancy.

2. Keep sugar levels stable Entering the 6-month gestational age, the appetite of pregnant women will generally increase. When eating lots of foods that contain sugar and not balanced with activity, sugar levels can rise. This will be very dangerous when labor arrives. Therefore, walking is highly recommended to reduce this risk. 3. Increase stamina
Walking regularly every day will help train the muscles of the body to become more relaxed and elastic, so you don't get tired easily and stay active in all situations. 4. Launch labor
When walking, all the muscles of the pelvis and uterus will become more relaxed. As explained above, this condition will greatly help open the birth canal, allowing you to give birth normally and postpartum recovery becomes faster.
