Exercise and Pregnancy: Is it safe

It is safe but prior doctor consultation should be made before doing any exercise during pregnancy. There is no proof that gentle exercise has any effect on pregnancy. If no medical complication is there, it is safe to do some exercise.

Under some medical conditions exercise might be harmful for the baby. If doctor approves a mother could start with mild exercise and slowly increase the activity. Walking, swimming or stationary cycling are common form of exercises which could be done but with consultation with doctor.

The risk of fall or injury should be avoided and even mild injury in and around tummy could be dangerous. Room should be well ventilated while excercise and lot of fluids should be taken while and after the excercise.
