Lots of ladies take pride in being “hot mammas” well before they are even sexy spouses, and lots love the idea of being “hot moms”, well after they deliver their baby.

And, according to experts achieving motherly “hotness” begins even before your conceive. And, it’s also good for your and your baby.

Pre-pregnancy workout regimen:

· Start working out regularly before you conceive or even start trying. In fact, it’s best to be in your best shape prior to pregnancy so that you give your baby the best growing environment possible and so that you’re able to bounce back faster.
· Seek out a strong support system, whether it’s other gals you can work out with or from you spouse.

During your pregnancy:
· Don’t stop your routine, but DO talk to your doctor about just how active you should be keeping. And, don’t forget to listen to and take cues from your body, but not using your pregnancy as an excuse to do less or to completely stop “challenging” yourself.
· Accept some natural weight gain, it’s good for the baby.
· Keep others, especially friends, family, and your hubby “in the loop”.
· Keep up with healthy practices, including eating healthy

Post Pregnancy:
· Accept your feelings and the fact that everyone has their own unique feelings and experiences post pregnancy.
· Make sure to stay mobile and active, as much as you can. Exercise and physical activity releases endorphins, which also help enhance your mood. Experts suggest stroller workouts or going for walks with your baby held close to you in a carrier.
· Continue to keep other involved in your life and don’t be afraid or too proud to ask for help or some advice and/or support.

Daddy Dynamics:
· Make sure to get involved with making sure mom stays healthy and comfortable
· Make sure your mate know and feels that your care. Don’t forget to pamper her, touch her belly and make time for going on her appointments and helping her keep fit.
· Accept that hormones WILL affect her moods (and quite often at that), and don’t take it personally
· Try to arrange for time for just the two of you.
· Find ways to help her out and relieve some of the stress and uncertainly she is experiencing.
