Exercise in Pregnancy
It is recommended that during uncomplicated, low-risk pregnancies, you continue your pre-pregnancy routine with some modifications. Regular exercise will help keep you and the baby healthy, can help you meet your pregnancy weight gain goals, and can make labor and delivery easier! We recommend a moderate exertion, with your heart rate staying in the 130’s (Click here to learn how to check your pulse) for 30 minutes daily. Stop if you notice any vaginal bleeding, cramping, or if you are having difficulty catching your breath or are having any chest pain or dizziness. Drink lots of water!
You may be asked not to exercise if you are having any issues with blood pressure, preterm contractions, vaginal bleeding, growth concerns with the baby or multiple-birth pregnancy. This will be evaluated on a case-to-case basis. Check out the full selection of Prenatal Classes offered by Beaumont including exercise, yoga and swimming.
