Can a pregnant woman do exercise?

If you're healthy, the risks of moderate-intensity activity during pregnancy are very low, and do not increase risk of low birth weight, pre-term delivery, or early pregnancy loss. Before you continue your old exercise routine or begin a new one, you should talk to your doctor about exercising while you're pregnant.
