    Exercise for Pregnant Woman

    Dearest Mums,

    I would like to know what kind of exercise a pregnant woman will do
    to make her and the baby in the womb healthy.
    I just have a friend who is a first time mum and she is asking me on what kind of
    exercise will she do?

    Please help me how to advise her.

    Thank you,

    Dear kindmum4kids,

    In terms of exercise in pregnancy, it is recommended that a pregnant woman exercises at a level similar to her pre-pregnancy level. In other words, she should not suddenly start exercising a lot more or a lot less once she becomes pregnant. Swimming and brisk walking are great exercises in pregnancy. You should not be so breathless that you are unable to hold a conversation whilst exercises. Pregnant women should also avoid laying on their back in pregnancy beyond around 15 weeks of pregnancy.

    Obviously, contact sports should be avoided in pregnancy.

    Eating a healthy, balanced diet is equally important for the baby's development. Have a look at this recent post about foods to boost baby's brain development in pregnancy.

    With warm wishes,
    LJ
