Regular exercise during pregnancy can improve wellbeing, decrease the risk of weight gain and back pain, and promote delivery. Moderate activity during pregnancy can be a healthy start for a newborn. Exercise can enhance heart health and endurance at any time, decrease fatigue and constipation, increase mood and energy levels, increase sleep and enhance muscle strength. A well-chosen fitness routine during pregnancy will offer the same benefits.

 It is necessary to discuss with a health care professional any changes in exercise patterns, to ensure that you do the right kind of exercise at the right pregnancy time.
