Many might not know that cycling when a woman is pregnant is actually advisable. Some of its benefits are below:
-Cycling can be better than walking making it easier on the joints and muscles as it can lessen the aches and pains.
-Pregnant women who cycle more are less likely to suffer from depression and insomnia.
-It is a low impact exercise just like swimming and lessens the strain on your body.
-Because it lowers stress, it also lowers cortisol levels. It is also a great way of maintaining sugar, healthy body weight and blood pressure.
