Philadelphia Doula Prenatal Health Series: Fit4Mom/Fit4Baby If you live in Philadelphia and are pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant in the near future, you may want to check out Fit4Baby.  The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) say that exercise is just as important during pregnancy as any other time of life.  Fit4Baby is a prenatal fitness program that focuses on pregnant moms and works to safely prepare and strengthen the body for all the changes it will go through during pregnancy.  There are other Fit4Mom classes that include dads, nannies, and other family members (see for more details).

Fit4Baby classes are an hour long and include strength training, cardio, balancing and stretching exercises.  They take place in the evening and are good for any stage of pregnancy, so even if you work during the day, you can still make the class in the evening.

Classes in November will be held on Thursdays, Nov. 7, 14, and 21 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Church at 2125 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19103.  For more info call 610.731, 6525.
