Beautiful pregnant woman relaxing in the parkExercise During Pregnancy: What’s OK?

Daily exercise is recommended for all pregnant women unless you are told otherwise by your physician.

  • 30 minutes of moderate exercise (like a walk) is recommended nearly every day
  • You can exercise as vigorously as you did before you were pregnant
  • Stop exercising if you start having regular contractions

Avoid activities that put you at risk for trauma to the belly (after 12 weeks). This includes downhill skiing.
