Do I need to take a non-stress test during pregnancy?

Do I need to take a non-stress test during pregnancy?

Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

It is normal to have an increase in blood pressure during exercise. It is best to gradually increase your level of exercise to improve your tolerance. Cardiovascular endurance comes with time and your heart rate may not raise as much for your heart to do the same work. ...Read more
