Exercise in pregnancy

For those who normally exercise, it is good policy to keep it up at about 50-80% of what they normally do.

For those who do no regular exercises, it is good policy to do some gentle to moderate exercises 3 to 4 times a week for 30 to 40 minutes at a time.

The idea is the exercise should make one slightly sweaty.

These are general principles, individual circumstances may alter these recommendations. For example, women with “pregnancy induced hypertension” are not advised to exercise.
