No. But for most healthy moms-to-be who do not have any pregnancy-related problems, exercise is a safe and valuable habit. Even so, before exercising during pregnancy talk to your doctor or midwife. She will be able to suggest a fitness plan that is safe for your spouse.


 


According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, getting a doctor’s advice is important for both women who exercise before pregnancy and for those who’d like to start a fitness routine.


 


Women with the follow problems may not be able to exercise during pregnancy:



  • Heart disease
  • Lung disease
  • Obesity
  • Severe diabetes
  • Thyroid disease
  • Seizure disorder
  • Persistent bleeding in the second or third trimester
