As long as you feel comfortable and you have no medical issues in pregnancy, you can carry on exercising right up until your baby is born.

One study also showed that women who were previously active and stopped exercising before their second trimester had longer labour times and more interventions during delivery than those who kept exercising to the end of pregnancy.

You should aim to stay as fit as you were rather than over-exerting yourself or trying to achieve peak fitness. Use the ‘talk test’ to make sure you’re not overdoing it – you shouldn’t be so out of breath that you can’t hold a conversation.

  • Don’t overheat – drink water regularly and don’t exercise in very hot temperatures (unless you’re used to it).
  • Don’t exercise on your back after 16 weeks.
