Description

It is highly encouraged for pregnant women not to participate in ice skating while pregnant due to the possibility of falling, which could bring contractions or cause your placenta to tear away from the uterus. Both contractions and the tearing of the uterus will bring on preterm delivery.
Never exercise to the point of exhaustion or breathlessness. Stop exercising immediately if you experience any of the following: vaginal bleeding, difficulty breathing especially while resting, dizziness, headache, chest pain, muscle weakness, calf pain or swelling, preterm labor, decreased fetal movement, and fluid leaking from your vagina.
Check with your physician to discuss the risks and benefits of ice skating during your pregnancy.
