Swimming and pregnancy

Most recommended sports are swimming, cycling, or light to moderate intensity walking for 20-40 minutes and with a frequency of 3 times a week.

Muscle training can be performed once or twice a week at an intensity of 50%, with 15-20 repetitions per exercise and paying special attention to pelvic, abdominal, lumbar, and pectoral regions.

Flexibility must be daily worked, if possible.
