"Exercising Through Your Pregnancy"

By Dr. James F. Clapp

Human Kinetics


256 pages

This book will serve as a bible for active women who want to keep exercising through pregnancy safely. Clapp, a noted researcher in the field of reproductive physiology, explains not only how to work out safely but why it is important to exercise during pregnancy. The book addresses three groups of women: the beginning exerciser, the recreational athlete and the competitive athlete. The book should help dispel many of the myths surrounding physical activity during pregnancy and make it comfortable for pregnant women to pursue exercise.
