Staying Fit While You're Pregnant
Women are encouraged to continue exercise, including strength training, during pregnancy, according to experts at the American College of Sports Medicine’s 12th annual Health & Fitness Summit & Exposition.

Although exercise is generally a good thing for expectant mothers, a healthcare provider should still be consulted to ensure safety and help tailor an exercise program for that specific woman based on her needs and potential barriers.
