Fertility and Pregnancy

A healthy lifestyle is an important contributor to achieving and maintaining a healthy pregnancy.  This blog aims to support and encourage you in making healthy lifestyle choices, which can help to optimize fertility and pregnancy outcomes.
Please see our “Categories” section (right-hand side of the blog page) to learn more about fitness and nutrition before and during pregnancy.  Let me know if there is a particular topic you would like to learn more about!

Although fitness is an important factor for most while trying to conceive and during their pregnancy, there are some contraindications when women should avoid or modify an exercise program, e.g. during some fertility treatments and with specific pregnancy complications.  You should always check with your doctor prior to undertaking a new fitness regime to determine if it is safe for you. 

Also, please remember that there are limitations to providing you with exercise information online.  I can provide you with demonstrations of how to perform exercises, but executing the exercises in a safe manner is your responsibility. Any type of exercise has the risk of injury, so be careful when exercising and know your limitations.
