Safe exercises during pregnancy should not be too high impact such as running and jumping. Stay away also from risky exercises such as biking and horseback riding because you would not want to have even a minor accident while riding or biking. Instead, go for low impact exercises that involve less force and stress on your body and have a lower risk of injury. 

Below are some of these low impact exercises that are safe for pregnancy. But before you start exercising, it is safest to consult your doctor before starting on any kind of exercise to make sure that it is safe for your particular case.

  • Walking. When everything else is restricted for those who may have a more delicate pregnancy, walking is the last option. This is one of the easiest to do especially since you can do it anywhere whether you are in the confines of your home or in a commercial property in the Philippines. Wear a comfortable pair of shoes that provide good support for your feet and do not forget to enjoy your walks no matter where you take them.

  • Yoga. Although the regular kind of yoga may not be appropriate for many pregnant women, there are a lot of poses that are quite safe even if you have a huge tummy already. If you are taking classes, make sure to inform the yoga teacher. Some yoga centers even offer yoga classes specifically for pregnant women.

  • Swimming. If you want an exercise that can provide you a whole body muscle workout, swimming is the best exercise for you. Not only is swimming a good cardiovascular exercise, it will also make you feel good about your body because you will feel lighter in the water. However, make sure that you have someone with you whenever you go for a swim to ensure that you have someone to help you should you have difficulty breathing or you get cramps.
