Health Tip: Enjoy Safe Exercise During Pregnancy

Health Tip: Enjoy Safe Exercise During Pregnancy

03/20/13

(HealthDay News) -- Exercise can be an important part of a healthy pregnancy, as long as you take precautions to stay safe.

The American Academy of Family Physicians lists these safety guidelines for exercising during pregnancy:

  • Always check with your doctor before you begin exercising during pregnancy.
  • Don't push yourself to the point of pain, excessive fatigue or shortness of breath.
  • If you have exercised regularly before pregnancy, you may need to exercise less vigorously.
  • If you did not exercise before pregnancy, ease into exercise slowly.
  • Stick to low-impact exercises that are easier on your body.
  • Avoid contact sports or activities where you may fall; avoid exercises that require you to lie on your back or long periods of standing.
  • Stay hydrated and don't overheat.
