Keeping active during pregnancy

Exercising is good for your body and soul, at all times. It is even more important if you are pregnant and want to be in tip-top shape during your pregnancy.

Call for caution

All doctors will tell you: exercise is beneficial during pregnancy. They will also warn you: you must avoid starting a new sport (we can be very clumsy when we don’t know a sport and we can overestimate our capacities for the same reason) and avoid intense training.

The other warning concerns mothers who train regularly: your doctor must be informed to ensure that your training does not put your pregnancy at risk.

Those who play sports or practice a risky activity should probably give up on it until the baby is born. For example, biking, downhill skiing, ice skating and rollerblading could be cons-indicated during pregnancy. Talk to your doctor, they could advise you.
