Pregnant expatriates may wish to exercise to reduce their likelihood of making a claim on private international health insurance policies, but an expert has advised them to carefully consider their workout regime.
Zest4lifeUK.com founder and wellness consultant Dr Joanna Helcke warned against competitive sports and impact exercises "because we all tend to forget ourselves when we're trying to win".
Furthermore, as foetuses are unable to regulate their body temperature, she advised becoming hot and out-of-beath ought to be avoided, as allowing a developing infant to overheat could possibly harm them.
Physical activities that do not have "control, measure and good technique" should not be engaged in, as expectant mothers are "more vulnerable to injury and back and joint pain", the doctor declared.
Swimming and walking were recently recommended as wise workouts for pregnant women by Louise Whyte, who is a personal trainer specialising in pregnancy and post-natal exercise and founder of Penelope Fitstar.
Individuals ought to "listen to their body", she argued.
