Caring for you as we would for ourselves

Exercise in pregnancy plan

Recent studies have shown that exercise is very good for the health of both the mother-to-be and her unborn baby, as long as certain precautions are taken. Exercise also helps to significantly reduce the risk of complications.

This is why Hôpital de La Tour's physiotherapists have worked with the Health & performance team to offer professional support to women who want to exercise during their pregnancy. The Maternal-fetal medicine center also supports for this plan.
