It's not news that barring special circumstances that make it unsafe, expectant moms should still exercise. However, what is news is that exercising during pregnancy could improve your baby's heart...after she's born. The results of a 2008 study show that if expectant moms exercised three times a week for at least 30 minutes each time, their developing baby's heart rate was lower during the end of pregnancy. Even better, the baby's improved cardiovascular control remained one month after birth. Basically, the regular exercise you get now might just help your baby's health after you deliver her.
