I am 4 months pregnant can I perform exercise?
Hello, I am 4 months pregnant . Exercise is dangerous for pregnant women and should be avoided during pregnancy. Is it true? Can I perform the exercise?
@nudhina It is not dangerous to exercise or to be physically active during pregnancy and doctors recommend it for most pregnant women. Women who exercised before pregnancy should continue to do so. Women who wish to become active during pregnancy may do so and should start slowly, however, pregnancy is not the time to exercise with the goal of weight loss. Check with your health care professional before beginning an exercise program during pregnancy.
Physical activity and regular exercise during pregnancy can improve common discomforts such as backache and fatigue and can increase the likelihood of early recovery after delivery. In general, most kinds of aerobic, resistance, and flexibility exercises like yoga are safe during pregnancy.
