All kinds of exercises are safe to perform during pregnancy as long as you are healthy and not suffering from any pregnancy-related complications. Swimming, brisk walking, indoor stationary cycling and low-impact exercises are best for an expecting mother. However, there are some particular activities they must avoid for the baby’s safety.
Avoid lying flat on your back after the 4th month of pregnancy.
Avoid sports in which there is a risk of injuries such as kickboxing, squash, tennis, football and hockey.
Avoid physical activities in which change in pressure and altitude is common like scuba-diving.
Avoid high impact exercises that involve lots of twisting and turning.
