I was wondering - does society (friends, family, strangers, etc.) make it difficult for a pregnant woman to exercise without feeling judged for doing so?
I never see pregnant women (at least those with a visible bump ) at the gym I go to. Occasionally in the pool, but not often. And the general consensus I've heard from pregnant women is that if they do engage in some sort of physical activity, they're warned off doing so because they're putting their pregnancy at risk. Which may be true for some forms of exercise, but not most. There still seems to be a popular belief that exercising whilst pregnant is in some way dangerous and selfish, and that women should be 'resting'.
