Exercising during and after pregnancy

We’ve found this brilliant article from BBC Sports for you about exercising during and after pregnancy. It shows that the advice re: returning to exercise post natally is so varied and often unique to the individual. The article highlights the importance of not returning to exercise too soon but demonstrates that there are no clear guidelines on returning to exercise after pregnancy.

The article also includes stories from top athletes and how they maintained their fitness levels during pregnancy.


We understand the desire to keep active during and after pregnancy but it is important to consider your and your baby’s health too. If you are in any doubt or would like some advice regarding exercising both ante and post natally then Lisa, our specialist women’s health physiotherapist, is the one to talk to.
