How to exercise during Pregnancy

Expectant women can benefit a lot from exercise if they follow precautionary measures outlined by medical experts. First and foremost such women should undertake moderate and regular exercises and never participate in strenuous workouts. These are dangerous and can easily cause a miscarriage.
Secondly, pregnant women need to consult a doctor before beginning to exercise in order to get advice on the appropriate type of exercise. In case of pain during exercise, the woman should stop exercising immediately and inform the doctor.

If a pregnant woman has been exercising before she became pregnant, then she must ensure that she does not exercise intensely as she was doing before during the pregnancy. It is also important for the woman to exercise regularly not in an on and off manner. For example she can exercise daily or thrice every week.

Pregnant women are also encouraged to take a walk daily as a form of exercise. It is not advisable for such women to stay indoors for extended periods doing nothing or sleeping. However, the following categories of pregnant women should never participate in any physical exercise
A) Women who have had a miscarriage in the past.
For such women any exercise is likely to trigger another miscarriage
b) Women who suffer from Asthma, Diabetes or any heart disease should also not exercise
Pregnancy poses a health risk to such women and exercise can easily move things from bad to worse for these pregnant women
c) Women who experience bleeding during pregnancy should also never exercise. The same applies to pregnant women who have a weak cervix or a low placenta.

In a nutshell, although exercise can be useful to a pregnant woman it must be done with utmost care and with strict compliance with doctor’s recommendations.
