Intense excercise leads to Miscarriage

A new study in Denmark found that women who exercise intensively during the first phase of pregnancy are 3.7 times more likely to miscarry than pregnant women who don’t break a sweat.

The highest risk is during the first trimester, for women who play high impact sports or exercise strenuously for at least seven hours a week. After the 18th week of pregnancy, this specific risk to the baby seems to disappear.

The findings are not meant to discourage expecting women from excercizing, but do insist on caution and “argue in favour of a review of exercise guidelines for pregnant women.” Read more here.
