My title says it all. If rigorous, regular exercise is part of your life and you want all the answers as to how hard, how much, and how will it benefit or hurt my baby if I keep it up, this is the book for you. It clears up all of those ambiguous gray areas you may have encountered while researching these questions at pregnancy websites or even in primary medical literature. Dr. Clapp's work is extensive and his writing excellent. It is informative and smart without being too dry or technical. I read it twice in the first months of my pregnancy. I'm now 6 months in and still running, swimming, hiking without worry of harm and with enthusiasm for benefit. It's the best book out there for information on exercise and pregnancy and oh, don't let me chase those interested in starting an exercise program off by making this sound like it only has information for those already ensconsed in an exercise program. He also looks into the benefits of starting an exercise program after you are pregnant.

This book is an excellent read for those who are serious about exercise and pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant. It is scientific and cites a lot of research, which is very reassuring. Unlike other books that warn women away from anything other than a brisk walk the author supports the healthy fit mother's decision making. (Dr Miriam Stoppard on the other hand warns against jogging or running under any circumstances.)

I consulted this book throughout my pregnancy, and exercised until the last day. I was running again 12 days after the birth. Staying fit during my pregnancy was good for me and good for my baby. Pregnancy does not mean the end of fitness. It is possible to have a child and a positive body experience. Thank you Dr Clapp for your sensible approach to pregnancy.

I would highly recommend this book to any woman who is pregnant or planning to conceive!!! As a distance runner who would like to start a family, I have been concerned about the duration and intensity of exercise that is safe/healthy to maintain both while trying to conceive and during pregnancy. I have read many articles online and other books about the subject of exercise during pregnancy, but have found that most contain only anecdotal stories or vague guidelines based on maintaining a low to moderate fitness level. As someone who enjoys lengthy and fairly strenuous workouts, I was hardly finding answers about the safe upper boundaries of physical exertion. This book was just what I needed!!! Each chapter of this book explains how exercise impacts the (un-pregnant) body, how a pregnancy impacts the body, and how the two interact together in terms of health and well-being for both mother and baby. There are sections targeted to beginning or low-level exercisers, moderate/recreational exercisers, and elite athletes!! The research behind the recommendations is also explained in clear yet thorough terminology so that each chapter left me feeling fully informed, yet not bogged down. Even if the science is a little too detailed for some readers, each chapter ends with a summary section of bullet points so you move onto the next topic with the important take-home messages in the forefront of your mind. I loved that the book contained recommendations on when to start exercising (BEFORE pregnancy if possible... so this would be a great pre-conception read), the durations that are recommended, the intensity levels that are most beneficial to baby, and information on the rate at which you can increase the intensity of your workouts (if you so desire). Again, this book is far and away the best book that I have found regarding safe and healthful exercise prior to and during a pregnancy! A must read in my opinion!!

This book was exactly what I was looking for; research and explanations about exercising safely during pregnancy. It explains why people fear it and it broke down common misconceptions and truths about body temperature, heart rate limitations and the impact of strenuous and moderately strenuous exercise on fetus and mother in previously fit or sedentary mothers. It was really reassuring to me to read that relying on my own perceived exertion with a good way to monitor exertion without fear I was causing harm to my baby. I wish others would catch up on this research and more research would be continued as so many people make fear based negative comments toward active pregnant women.

It took me two years to get pregnant so I wanted to be absolutely sure that it was safe to exercise. I was exercising 4 to 5x a week before getting pregnant. I stopped the first eight weeks, read this book and am back to working out. The book is a little technical but thats what I wanted.. research and data proving to me that it was ok to do squats, run, and lift weights. I learned not only is it safe but great for you and the baby. Dr.Clapp shows charts and gives data on mother's weight loss after baby and the higher intelligence of those babies whose moms exercised during pregnancy. This book is also great for beginning exercisers. Dr. Clapp tells them how much they need to exercise to get the benefits as if they had exercised through out their entire pregnancy. He goes through each trimester giving precautions and suggestions. He also talks about how the 140 heart rate is not how you should monitor yourself during exercise. It's about hydration and core temperature. Who cares if the pictures are dated! I believe they are coming out with a revised edition. This book is a must for any expecting mother and personal trainer. It's great information and will keep you motivated to exercise!
