Can I exercise during my pregnancy?
This is the biggest question I get asked! My answer: Of course you can! Being pregnant and going through labour is a bit like running a marathon, and you would never just do a marathon without preparing, exercising, and having some idea of what you’re getting into. A client of mine was seeing her OBGYN in the later stages of her pregnancy and was asked if she had any other medical issues and she replied with “asthma, but only when exercising.” Her OBGYN looked at her dumbfounded and said “well what do you think you’re about to do? have your inhaler with you during labour!”
