As a pregnant mother, you should regularly engage in aerobic exercise and physical activities, such as walking, swimming, dancing and cycling, to keep the body fit and ensure a healthy pregnancy. Exercise throughout pregnancy increases your muscle strength, boost your immune system, reduces your risks of gestational diabetes, helps you maintain a better body image, make labour and delivery easier, and it helps you recover faster from childbirth.
Exercise is safe during pregnancy and also it is recommended. Being energetic with 30 minutes of exercise on most or all days can benefit your health during pregnancy. Exercise of just 20 minutes 3 or 4 days a week is still beneficial. If you were physically active before you were pregnant, it is likely safe to remain active during pregnancy but you should consult with your health care provider before starting any exercise program.
