Exercise and sport during your pregnancy is healthy

A long walk or an hour's swim is incredibly good for you and your baby. During pregnancy, you may feel tired more easily, but more exercise will give you more energy, make you feel stronger, and keep your stamina up. If you already did a lot of sports before you were pregnant, you can continue to do so. There are a number of sports that are not advised during pregnancy because of safety concerns, such as martial arts, winter sports, and ball sports. A number of suitable sports during your pregnancy are yoga or pilates, for example, but walking, fitness, dancing and cycling are also good for your body.
