Is it safe to use the Sauna and Steam room during pregnancy?

What about using the gym for light excersises?

Hi Thiaba,

As long as you are fit & well then it is safe to use them but only in small time frames. Eg 5 minutes at a time.
If you are unsure check with your own GP / MW as they have access to yu notes etc & can make a clinical decision.

The gym is fine too as long as you have a personalised work out plan.

Aqua natal aerobics is a really good way to keep fit when pregnant as the weight of the bump is supported by the water.

Hope this helps.
