Expatriates should continue working out if they are pregnant, but they must moderate their exertion if they do not wish to have to make a claim on expat insurance policies.
Vicky Warr, pregnancy and postnatal fitness specialist at beez-kneez.co.uk, suggested mums-to-be engage in cardiovascular exercise to the point where they are still able to continue a conversation.
Swimming, stationary cycling and fast-paced walking were all recommended by the specialist, who advised against taking bicycles on the road "because of balance issues and safety with all the cars".
Expecting women should not be "heavily panting" due to physical activity and will probably find they lose their breath more quickly than usual due to high levels of blood pumping around the body, she pointed out.
Becoming hot and out-of-breath could possibly harm a developing infant, wellness consultant and Zest4lifeUK.com founder Dr Joanna Helcke recently warned.
"Functional exercises" were also promoted by Ms Warr, who claimed these can help women avoid backache and develop strong abdominal muscles.
These will be the activities women will do after they have given birth, such as bending down and picking up items, she remarked.
