11 CAN I CON­TINUE GO­ING TO MY FAVOURITE KICK­BOX­ING CLASSES?

Your Pregnancy - - Feature -

A big, punch-filled no! There is a chance of get­ting kicked in the ab­domen and that is just not worth the risk. But ex­er­cise is great for you and your baby, so maybe switch to less dan­ger­ous ex­er­cises such as swim­ming or join a class de­signed for preg­nant women. If you re­ally en­joy kick­box­ing and can’t bear the thought of stop­ping, chat to your in­struc­tor on how you can per­son­alise the ex­er­cise to suit your chang­ing body. In your third trimester you can also ex­per­i­ment with do­ing your moves in wa­ter.
