There is no cookie-cutter answer for what is safe when it comes to working out when you are pregnant. The same rules apply for postpartum, the reason is simple; every pregnancy is different. For some women, exercising during pregnancy can be scary - there is still this idea that working out while pregnant can increase your risk of miscarriage, low birth weight, or early delivery.

If you have always worked from home (or have just started doing so since the pandemic started), being tempted to mindlessly snack or eat while putting in your work can quickly become a regular habit. Experts Rachel Hall and Danielle Pashko break down the reasons for some of these habits and how you can work towards changing them.

Although you may be checking things off your to-do list, you might be causing yourself harm long term. Studies have actually shown that multitasking can reduce your overall performance and efficiency in the task(s) you are trying to complete.
If you have been hitting the gym frequently, revving up your regular runs, or even participating in a few fitness competitions, you may not realize that the few aches and pains you have might require a little more attention.

Another possibility is the baby gaining an excessive amount of weight to the point it can disrupt the child's breathing.
Working from home has its pros and cons when it comes to your overall health. There is the presumption that your stress level is reduced by removing daily commutes and a restricted sleep schedule. Although this may be true in some cases, in other scenarios, stress levels might be elevated with the task of balancing home-life and work-life in one space.
