Physical activity during pregnancy

The best activity types

- Walking, half an hour per day to stimulate blood circulation and increase your respiratory capacity.

- Swimming, in particular the backstroke, for relief from lumbar pain and accumulated tension.

- Yoga, for relaxation and improved respiratory capacity. Note, however, that certain yoga positions and more intense types of yoga are not recommended during pregnancy. Practice yoga with a professional who is experienced in working with expectant mothers.

- Gentle fitness routines, under the supervision of a professional with knowledge of recommended exercise for expectant mothers.

- Biking at moderate speeds and on flat terrain, until about the fifth month of pregnancy.
