Exercise During Pregnancy


During pregnancy, as many hormonal changes are happening inside the body, the same changes are also seen physically from outside. There is swelling in the legs, pain starts in the back, body weight increases, so there is difficulty in walking, flatulence (the problem of blotting), and constipation also. But these symptoms associated with pregnancy cannot be completely overcome, although there is one thing through which these problems can be reduced and that is exercise.

If you exercise regularly during the entire 9 months of pregnancy, it can be beneficial for you as well as your baby. During regular pregnancy, the mother's mood due to regular exercise is good, the posture is correct, the pain in the back is relieved, the stress is not relaxed and the fatigue is not too much. Exercise during pregnancy also reduces your chances of blood pressure (hypertension), gestational diabetes, and cesarean operation.

A pregnant woman should do at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. But the biggest question is, what should be exercised during pregnancy in view of you and your child's safety?      

Dr. Arti from Mayom Hospital, says, "Exercise during pregnancy depends on your prior fitness. If you are starting physical activity for the first time, then start with a 15-minute walk, increase it gradually for 45 minutes.  She adds "If you want to have a normal pregnancy and you are one of the former exercisers, you can continue them by making some changes in them during pregnancy as well."

The gynae from the Pregnancy hospital in Gurgaon suggests that If a pregnant woman has any type of disease like asthma, heart disease, or diabetes, then they are advised not to exercise. Apart from this, if you have any of these problems during pregnancy, you should also avoid exercising-

  • If bleeding and spotting occur during pregnancy
  • Have a level of the placenta
  • If there is a risk of miscarriage or if you have had a miscarriage before
  • If you have already had a premature delivery or premature labor pain
  • A pregnant woman's cervix is weak

Before starting an exercise during pregnancy, talk to, a gynecologist at the Best delivery hospital in Gurgaon or a health expert and also make your exercise program according to their advice. Looking at your health and medical history, they will be able to choose the right exercise for you.
