There are many sports and activities that pregnant women can do up until the end of their pregnancy, and there are some activities which other women swear off from the start of their pregnancy. Conflicting reports about certain sports and activities can be confusing, but there are some guidelines that will help you to decide which sport during your pregnancy is safe for you and your baby. Whenever you play a sport or do an activity during your pregnancy, it is important to always warm up and cool down before and after you play.
Before playing a potentially dangerous sport during your pregnancy you may want to consult your doctor first. If your doctor feels that you should not play, then follow his or her guidelines. If you have never played that sport or activity before, now is definitely not the time to start.
