Pregnancy is one of the only times in our lives that we are expected to gain weight. Healthy and optimal pregnancy weight gain depends on multiple factors, including your pre-pregnancy weight and body mass index (BMI).
Pregnancy is hard on the body. In just a few short months, pregnant women experience weight gain, loose ligaments, and a shifting center of gravity. Our bodies shift around to accommodate, and we often notice changes in how we stand, walk, and move around throughout the day. This can lead to back pain, pelvic pain, and wild changes in balance for pregnant women. Fortunately, support is out there!
