- Over 100 pregnant Rwandan women have gathered for the first national exercise organised for them
- The organisers explained that hopefully, the myth about the bodies of pregnant women will change
- According to them, it is wrong to conclude that pregnant women should stop every activity that entails physical effort
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Rwanda has launched a public exercise programme aimed at improving the health of pregnant women.
YEN.com.gh understands that the women revealed they enjoyed the programme so much that they are looking forward to the next one.
According to the organizers of the event, they hope to change the myth about the bodies of pregnant women.
This, they explained, is because it is believed that a pregnant woman needs to halt every activity that involves physical effort.
Per a report by peacefmonline.com, Libérée Uwizeyimana who is eight months pregnant admitted that prior to the event, she never exercised during pregnancy.
She added that she felt tired because she is not used to such a routine but is happy she exercised with others like her.
Ruth Ntukabumwe, who is seven months pregnant, also noted that she is looking forward to more of such exercises.
She went on to say that the exercise is very good and she felt relaxed and the child’s movement made her feel good.
