Exercise During Pregnancy – Women’s Health of Central Massachusetts

The following is a frequently asked question from our “Moms-to-Be” page of our website.

Q: Can I maintain my workout schedule?

A: A modified program of light exercise is actually encouraged during your pregnancy. The key is simply not to over do it. This is not a time to push yourself to the limits of exhaustion. If you monitor your heart rate, do not exceed a rate of 140 beats per minute.

Women’s Health is happy to announce that we are now offering the H1N1 vaccine to both our obstetric and gynecologic patients. Our current supply does not contain mercury and is safe to receive during pregnancy. H1N1 is still a concern. Call our office today and get protected.
