Pregnancy Tips – Work out and Exercising

Staying active during pregnancy can help improve mood, reduce stress, and boost energy levels. It can also help in maintaining a healthy weight and promoting better sleep.

Just remember to consult with your healthcare provider before starting any new exercise routine.

Safe exercises for pregnant women

Here are some exercises that you can safely continue doing during your pregnancy unless you have been advised to bedrest or against exercising. If you have any medical complications that have been identified in your examination or ultrasound, consult your gynaecologist before starting any exercise routine during pregnancy.

2 ▪ Swimming: a great way to stay active while supporting the extra weight of pregnancy.
3 ▪ Prenatal yoga: helps improve flexibility, strength, and relaxation.
4 ▪ Modified strength training: using light weights or resistance bands under supervision.
