The extra hormones do not only enhance the growth of the fetus but also have an effect on your general well-being. Meanwhile, childbirth and breastfeeding offer some healthful benefits of their own, which research also suggests women experience up to 70% positive feeling during pregnancy as they feel more strengthened during the second and third trimesters. So, in this article, we would be looking at the three surprising benefits of pregnancy.
1. Health Becomes Important
Pregnancy causes many women to develop many useful habits and also gets the most effective inspiration to quit some certain bad habits like Smoking. There are lot of women that do not have time to carry out some healthy activities such as exercising, but during pregnancy, you will get the best encouragement to begin exercising.
2. No More Menstrual Cramp
Have you ever wondered why most women look forward to pregnancy, it's certainly because of the frustrations that come with menstruation? However, after childbirth and breastfeeding, the menstrual cycle will likely resume but this time with fewer cramps, which is a good side effect. Although the reason for the reduction in pain is not clear, most studies proved that childbirth eliminates some of the prostaglandin receptors in the woman's uterus. This hormone called prostaglandin is responsible for the contraction of the uterus during labor, and also plays a major role in monthly menstrual pain.

3. Improves Intimacy
As sensitivity increases, intimacy gets stellar for women and also helps improve their sexual life during the second trimester. This is because of the increase in blood flow to the pelvic area, which helps stimulate more sensitivity and likelihood to orgasm during intimacy. However, many women are different when it comes to intimacy during pregnancy as some may feel more sexual urges while others may feel unpleasant about their new changes. Intimacy during pregnancy helps to create a strong bond between you and your partner.
