Are there workouts I shouldn’t do?

Now is a great time to be active. Now is not the time to start extreme sports!

Try not to do:

  • Actions that jerk your body such as riding a horse or skiing.
  • Contact sports such as basketball, soccer or boxing.
  • High-risk activities such as scuba diving or rock climbing.
  • Workouts at high temperatures such as hot yoga.
  • Anything that makes you lie on your back. Lying on your back in the last three months can affect your blood flow. This could hurt you or your baby.
