Many years ago it was thought that exercising during pregnancy might be dangerous. It is now very well proven from research that keeping physically active during pregnancy is not only safe, but is associated with numerous benefits for both the mother and the unborn baby.
There is good evidence to show that those who participate in exercise regularly from the first trimester have less risk of complications. Those who meet the recommended guidelines for exercise through their pregnancy are less likely to experience gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety and back pain.
Importantly, there is also a huge amount of evidence that for uncomplicated pregnancies, exercise DOES NOT increase the risk of miscarriage, birth defects, or going into early labour.
So it’s official – we know for sure that if you have been given the medical all clear to keep active in your pregnancy, you should!
