Pregnancy is said to be a very delicate stage in a woman's life. With a new life growing inside her, a pregnant woman may be considered especially fragile during this time -- one wrong move and she could put unnecessary harm to herself or the baby!

Our experts, Dr. Marie Cruz-Javier, an OB-Gyn at St. Luke's Medical Center in Taguig, and licensed fitness instructor Connie Fortich, weigh in on the matter.
