Pregnancy suppresses a woman's immune system, otherwise the fetus might be rejected by her body as a 'foreign body'. This can make a pregnant woman more prone to infection which has implications for her own health as well as for her developing baby. So it is especially important to try and promote positive health while pregnant through a combination of good, nutritious food, rest, relaxation and gentle exercise. For those who don't exercise regularly, yoga is a good choice when pregnant, particularly in a class specially designed for expectant mums.
