Step Two to Becoming an Active Role Model

Talk to your healthcare provider (doctor or registered midwife) before continuing or beginning a fitness program.  This will give you the opportunity to rule out any reasons why you may need to modify your activity level beyond the national guidelines

Be sure to bring a copy of the PARmed-X for Pregnancy form to your visit. This form serves as a medical clearance form and most prenatal fitness programs will require a copy signed by you and your healthcare provider.  It considers your past/present health status and activity levels as well as any possible contraindications to exercise.
