Question: Exercising while pregnant… is it safe?
Answer: Yes
Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean it isn’t safe to exercise. In fact, most doctors recommend staying active while you are pregnant because it offers many benefits during pregnancy and through delivery.

Moderate levels of exercise during pregnancy can help relieve back pain, keep you feeling energized, balance your mood and even improve sleep. Some experts even recommend working out while you are pregnant to help reduce your risk of gestational diabetes and high blood pressure.

Before you start a pregnancy exercise program, it is important to discuss it with your doctor. He/she will recommend guidelines for the types of exercise you should do, and whether you have any pregnancy health concerns that might prevent you from exercising, such as vaginal bleeding, cardiovascular disease or preterm labor.
