If you haven't exercised a lot in the past, then a slow intro to training is recommended. Around 30 minutes moderate exercise a day can be beneficial for both mother and baby, however, this needs to be checked with your GP or midwife (as they know your personal circumstances).

Low impact activities are best, consider:
-swimming
-walking
-pilates/yoga (soft versions)
-light weight training (if you have done this for a number of months before).
