Fitness and Exercise in Pregnancy Specialists in Jupiter, Florida
Fitness & Exercise in Pregnancy
During your initial visit with the providers, you will discuss healthy living practices like not smoking or being around second-hand smoke, good food choices, and how you can exercise during pregnancy. In most cases, moderate exercise during pregnancy is safe and a great benefit to you and your baby.
Studies have shown multiple benefits to women who exercise and stay active during pregnancy. These benefits include less back pain and discomfort during pregnancy, feeling stronger during labor and deliver and a faster recovery from childbirth.
Many area gyms and community centers offer prenatal exercise classes, prenatal yoga, or prenatal water activities to help you exercise and make connections with other soon-to-be mothers. These activities are designed to be gentler on a pregnant woman’s body.
Sports and activities to avoid during pregnancy include: horseback riding, water skiing, SCUBA diving, contact sports, anything that may include the possibility of a fall or pressure on the abdomen. If you have any questions at all about whether exercise, sports or a physical activity could be dangerous, don’t hesitate to discuss it with the Brown Institute and his staff.
Welcome to the practice of Dr. Dudley Brown, Jr., Dr. Amanda Colbert,
and Rachel Taylor, WHPN-C. Our caring providers offer the following services.
Dr. Brown and his entire staff make you feel like you’re at home. You can tell they ALL truly care about each and every patient and kiddos being brought into this world. Dr. Brown, is hands down the best doctor I have ever been a patient to & there is something to be said for his level of professionalism. He knows when you make you laugh and when you need to be serious. I could not and would not have wanted to go through this pregnancy with any other doctor!!!
I had an in office procedure with Dr. Brown. I was amazed with how quick and flawless the entire experience was. He had the anesthesia team there (the meds were good). I was in and out and pain free in just about an hour and a half. It was lower cost having it done in office, instead of having it done outpatient in a hospital or surgery center. I can’t recommend this office more, I’ve always been happy with every experience I have had.
I have been going to Dr. Brown’s office since early 2017. After I relocated to Fort Lauderdale, I still make the drive up to be seen at Dr. Brown’s. They welcomed me in as a new patient and have continued to do so since. The entire office is more than accommodating, especially if I call crying in pain – they always fit me into their schedule to be seen (endless thanks!) and go above and beyond to provide the appropriate care needed. They make you feel like family, and I cannot imagine ever going anywhere else.
