Exercise during Pregnancy

Exercise during Pregnancy

Exercising regularly is essential to keep your body fit and healthy. Being pregnant doesn’t mean you don’t have to exercise. If you want to stay strong and deliver a healthy baby, it is better to start now and yes, exercising during pregnancy is safe and healthy. You can do jogging, walking, Pilates, functional movements and try yoga classes or anything that you are comfortable with. If you use to exercise before pregnancy, you can continue the same, however, just be careful. In this article, we explain some easy to do exercises that you can try out without much difficulty or assistance. So, let’s get started.

There are 3 stages of exercise as there are 3 trimesters in pregnancy:

-Walking, Swimming, Jogging, Yoga, Pilates, Functional Movements

SECOND TRIMESTER– Yoga, Pilates, Plank, Side-Lying Inner and Outer Thigh
THIRD TRIMESTER-Walking, Yoga, Pilates, Pelvic Floor Exercises


Walking is a simple yet effective aerobic exercise for maintaining your fitness during the pregnancy period. What makes it effective is that it is free and you can do it for all nine months if you feel comfortable. If you’re looking for something simple to start with then walking is the best way to get started.


Yoga primarily focuses on your mental and physical wellbeing. It involves various breathing exercises and body postures. Yoga during pregnancy focuses on relaxation and breathing techniques along with associated postures. By joining a reputed fitness centre in your area, take advice and you can reduce stress and achieve peace.


Pilates is a low impact exercise comprising controlled movements that enhance your balance, core strength, mobility, flexibility, and even mood. It focuses on the smaller and deeper muscles that support your structure and enhance your overall health.


Love to do cycling? Then it is a great way to begin your fitness journey. However, as your belly bump gets bigger, it will affect your balance which increases your chances of falling off. Luckily, you can exercise using a stationary exercise bike at the nearest gym.

The list doesn’t end here. There are plenty of other exercises you can do at home or work. Likewise, you can make your body and mind more active by engaging in light household chores or you can do gardening if it is something you love to do.

Don’t neglect the pelvic muscles

Pregnancy and childbirth weaken your pelvic floor muscles. These muscles are located in your pelvis and protect your bowels, womb and bladder. Weak pelvis muscles results increase the risks of becoming incontinent which is not good at all. Therefore, make sure to exercise and make your pelvis floor strong. furthermore, there are several exercises available which you can do at any time of day. Consulting your doctor is a good way to know more and the various exercises and activities you can do comfortably without any risk or injuries.

Consider these few tips

  • Do not exercise for more than 45 minutes daily
  • Stop exercising if your body shows unusual symptoms
  • Keep your body hydrated at all times
  • Warm-up before and cool down after exercising


If you haven’t done any exercises pre-pregnancy, you can start doing it now. Start with 15 minutes of exercise 3 days a week and slowly increase it to 30-minutes sessions 4 days a week or every day if you are comfortable. Also, while doing exercises, make it smooth and don’t push yourself too hard. However, this may result in becoming overheated which is not good for the mother and the baby.
