Since it is quite risky if you don’t exercise properly during pregnancy you have to be careful and should work under a professional supervisor. Pregnancy is a highly complex psychological state, and must always be very careful and consult your physician before you start or continue your existing exercise programme to ensure that this does not contribute to complications. Your individual medical and exercise history must be taken into account to see if you have any conditions which might restrict your physical activity during pregnancy. If you have no serious medical problems and have an uncomplicated pregnancy, it is probably safe for you do incorporate an exercising regimen into your daily routine. However, it is strictly advised that you consult your gynecologist first and see if he or she allows you and considers you fit for a pregnancy exercise routine.
If you have never exercised before, you need to start very slowly and don’t have to exert yourself too much. If you have already been exercising before pregnancy then it is easier for you to continue during pregnancy.
If your gynecologist approves, you can start exercising at a level that not cause pain, shortness of breath or excessive tiredness. Do it very slow but still it is ideal if you find a supervisor who is authorized and certified by a professional institute.
Also, before you start you need to take into account your pre-pregnancy fitness and activity level. Most physically fit women can continue most activities or at slightly below levels prior to pregnancy. Do not try to exceed pre-pregnancy levels.
Just don’t panic and try to hire a professional. If, in case you cannot hire a professional, don’t worry! Just make sure if you follow exercise tutorials on YouTube you watch them properly first, follow guidelines thoroughly and then attempt to do them on your own. Women who have never exercised before should avoid following these online tutorials and look for a professional.
