Exercise During Pregnancy – Birth Defect Prevention

Exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. It is beneficial to maintain an active pregnancy but the type of exercise may need to be modified in order to minimize risk to the unborn child. Overly vigorous exercise or activities that can cause trauma to the abdominal region should be avoided. The right amount and type of exercise during pregnancy will vary from woman to woman and it is important that you consult your doctor before you begin or continue a pre-pregnancy exercise program.
