• Get Strong: An Exercise Regimen for Pregnant Women

    Should you exercise while pregnant? Here's what the experts have to say
  • Pregnancy is said to be a very delicate stage in a woman's life. With a new life growing inside her, a pregnant woman may be considered especially fragile during this time -- one wrong move and she could put unnecessary harm to herself or the baby!

    Our experts, Dr. Marie Cruz-Javier, an OB-Gyn at St. Luke's Medical Center in Taguig, and licensed fitness instructor Connie Fortich, weigh in on the matter.
