Can I do sports?
Playing moderate intensity sports is beneficial for pregnancy and childbirth, however you must adapt to your new situation. Be aware that your center of gravity has moved and therefore your risk of falling is higher.
When can I resume sports activities?
It is recommended to wait about two months before resuming a sports activity. Before starting abdominal exercises it is best to tone the muscles of the perineum. Information sessions are organized during your stay in the Maternity by a team of physiotherapists and midwives. There are mother-baby exercise classes (cuddle fitness, baby swimming, etc.) offered by different institutions outside the hospital setting.
