Does physical fitness affect the health of a newborn baby?
They say everything including feelings felt by the mother can affect the baby, so if the mother works out regularily, would that cause the newborn child to be born at a higher level of health than a baby born of a mother that relaxed through pregnancy.
Im not sure if the health per se would be higher for the baby. But taking part in physical activity while pregnant has many benefits. It can lower your chance of getting gestational diabetes and make labor faster and easier for both you and baby.
