Health Benefits of Pregnancy

 

Yes you have read right, there are actually health benefits to being pregnant!

Once you overlook the obvious stresses and strains that pregnancy puts on your body, lets focus on the aspects that are positive:

  • Reduce the risk of ovarian and breast cancer
  • Reduce the risk of heart disease
  • Your periods may be less uncomfortable
  • You might find that your hair is thicker, better skin, a larger bust and more curves

So once the swollen hands and feet go down, you find your pelvic floor again and the hair that you lose after having a baby grows back.. you might find being a mother may be the best you’ve ever been inside and out.
