Adherence to healthy behavior and/or lifestyle modification in pregnancy including regular physical activity and judicious diet is safe and beneficial. Pregnancy is considered by most an opportune time for such interventions. Exercise in pregnancy has been universally accepted as safe and desirable. However judicious gestational weight gain guidelines for overweight and obese women are still being disputed, despite mounting evidence that with proper supervision, it is a safe and desirable intervention.

Keywords: Lifestyle interventions in pregnancy, exercise, gestational weight gain.
