Exercise is good for expectant mums and their unborn babies. Regular activity strengthens the circulatory system and boosts circulation. As a result breathing is intensified so that baby obtains more oxygen. Another important fact is that mums-to-be who are fit and healthy will be better equipped to face the challenges of the birth and looking after a newborn.
But do not overdo things; exercising should still be fun! Women who were not very active before becoming pregnant should start slowly and gently, and take their time. If you are not sure how much exercise is good for you, ask your doctor or midwife. Sports with a high risk of injury are naturally taboo. Gentle jogging, cycling and swimming are ideal types of exercise.

Health experts recommend swimming and aqua-training
Exercising in water is ideal for expectant mums, as there is little risk of injury and the whole body is moved. The buoyancy of the water also relieves strain on the spine, tendons and joints. The back and tummy relax and nagging backache and other complaints feel less acute in the weightlessness of the water.
