Exercise in Pregnancy :
Exercise is important to help maintain healthy weight gain in pregnancy, can reduce back pain, and decrease the risk of gestational diabetes and preeclampsia. It can also help you return to your starting weight after the baby is born.
Pregnancy is not the time to start a new exercise program. However moderate intensity aerobic activity at least 30 minutes, most days per week will be beneficial. Prenatal yoga or pilates will help stretch and strengthen muscles in pregnancy.
Avoid high risk vigorous exercises, contact sports, and exercising in heated rooms, such as hot yoga.
Stay hydrated! Drink plenty of water before, during, and after working out. Avoid becoming overheated.
