Why exercise when pregnant?

Exercising during your pregnancy has many benefits. Not only can it boost your physical and emotional wellbeing, but it can also decrease the risk of some pregnancy-related complications.

You can exercise while pregnant whether you did so pre-pregnancy or not. For those of you that were fit and healthy before falling pregnant, the main message is to keep it up – although you may need to modify your exercise program and stop playing some sports.

Before you start, run your exercise plan past a healthcare professional.
