When to start exercise for normal delivery
If you are planning for a normal delivery, it is recommended to start exercising regularly during your pregnancy, as early as the first trimester if your doctor approves.
 Regular exercise can help strengthen the muscles that will be used during labor and delivery, improve your stamina and endurance, and promote overall health and wellbeing for both you and your baby.

However, it is important to consult with your healthcare provider before starting any exercise program, especially if you have any medical conditions or complications during your pregnancy. 

Your doctor may recommend modifications to certain exercises or recommend avoiding certain activities altogether.

Generally, moderate exercise for 30 minutes a day most days of the week is recommended for pregnant women. Good exercises for normal delivery include walking, swimming, cycling, prenatal yoga, and low-impact aerobics.

 Pelvic floor exercises, also known as Kegels, can also help prepare your pelvic muscles for delivery.

As you get closer to your due date, your doctor may recommend specific exercises or positions that can help prepare your body for labor and delivery. 

These may include pelvic tilts, squats, and other exercises to help strengthen and stretch your pelvic muscles.
