Whether you're pregnant in the first, second, or third trimester, exercise is essential unless it is strongly advised by your doctor.

Pregnant women are commonly afraid of working out, especially during the third trimester for fear of preterm delivery or harm to the fetus. Exercise, on the other hand, is good for delivery and it decreases any potential difficulties and making delivery more comfortable and manageable.

While exercising in the 9th month, It is important that you keep up the high standards of self-care you've been practicing during this time, such as drinking plenty of water, eating a well-balanced diet rich in different nutrients, getting at least eight to ten hours of sleep each night, and paying close attention to any changes in your physical or emotional state.

Here are the benefits of exercising in the 9th month
