When Is Exercise Not Recommended During Pregnancy?

There are some contraindications of exercise during pregnancy, however, that must be considered. If you’ve experienced hypertension, pre-eclampsia, premature membrane rupture, placenta previa, persistent bleeding in the second or third trimester, uncontrolled diabetes or a breech-position foetus in the third semester, exercise may not be appropriate.

You should seek the assistance of your midwife or doctor if you experience fluid loss, vaginal bleeding, dizziness, feeling faint, shortness of breath, headaches, muscle weakness, swelling or pain in the calves, decreased foetal movement or pain in the abdomen, pelvic/pubic area or lower back (may indicate preterm labour).
