These are some generally safe strength exercises you can do during pregnancy to help you prepare for and ease labor, birth, and recovery. You can start these from early pregnancy and continue throughout, using your body and judgment as a guide as to how many reps, how often, and what size weights to use.
Exercise during pregnancy is associated with multiple health benefits for both you and your baby, and is safe for most women from the time of conception to delivery. Staying active while pregnant can help prepare your body physically for labor and delivery, as well as boost your mood and energy levels. Exercising regularly will also help you lose weight and recover faster following the birth of your baby.
