Prenatal exercises

From the 28th week of pregnancy onwards

 

During pregnancy, the woman’s body changes in perceptible and visible ways. Regular exercise can prevent possible problems such as varicose veins or pregnancy-related diabetes. Prenatal exercises are one way to specifically address this. Special emphasis is placed on exercises for relaxation, breathing and the circulatory system.

The following aspects physically and mentally support the preparation for childbirth:

  • Learning specific breathing techniques
  • Cardiovascular exercises
  • Pelvic floor exercises
  • Learning relaxation techniques
  • Training in the awareness and perception of the body
  • Exchanging experiences in the group
  • Please bring a confirmation from your gynecologist that you are allowed to participate in these exercises.

The prerequisite for participation is a negative result from a PCR test carried out by an approved provider (e.g. testing center, laboratory, pharmacy; “Gargle with us,” provided that your identity was verified by means of a camera and ID card), using a sample taken within the previous 48 hours, or proof of recovery (for the period of two months after the infection was eliminated).

Consultation, treatment

Skin diseases in expectant mothers

Pregnancy often has a positive effect on the skin of an expectant mother, since the improved blood circulation promotes a particularly fresh and youthful appearance.

At the same time, there may be changes that could be cause for concern: moles become darker and can look very similar to black skin cancer, melanoma. Often there are occurrences of sensitivity to light and itchy rashes. These are usually harmless and can be treated with mild local therapies that are harmless to the pregnancy. In some cases, however, they can be alarm signs of more serious diseases, such as the so-called pregnancy cholestasis or pemphigoid gestationis, a skin disorder that causes blisters. Here it is particularly important to have this clarified by someone with the appropriate medical experience. Special attention must be paid to ensure that the unborn child can tolerate the treatment.

At the Döbling Doctors’ Center, you can find a proven expert in skin diseases during pregnancy, Peter Maximilian Heil, MD.
