My girlfriend is one month pregnant. If she does any kind of exercising will that hurt the baby?

Exercise is very good for pregnant women. It can help them sleep better, feel more relaxed, cut down on backaches, and have easier pregnancies and deliveries.

A woman who’s pregnant should talk to her health care provider about exercise plans. Walking and swimming are good forms of exercise for pregnant women. A health care provider can suggest additional forms of exercise.

If a woman feels faint or dizzy during exercise, she should stop and relax. It’s also important to drink plenty of water before, during, and after exercising.
