Can You Exercise During Pregnancy?

A new Canadian guideline for exercise during pregnancy found that physical activity is NOT associated with fetal complications and can reduce the chance of developing a major pregnancy complication. The guideline includes six recommendations, including pregnant women should get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise each week.

Six Recommendations
  1. All women without contraindication should be physically active throughout pregnancy

  2. Pregnant women should accumulate at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity each week

  3. Physical activity should be accumulated over a minimum of three days per week

  4. Pregnant women should incorporate a variety of aerobic exercise and resistance training activities to achieve greater benefits

  5. Pelvic floor muscle training (e.g. Kegel exercises) may be performed on a daily basis to reduce the risk of urinary incontinence

  6. Pregnant women who experience light-headedness, experience nausea, or feel unwell when they exercise flat on their back should modify their exercise position to avoid the supine position
