    Hello,

    Please suggest if climbing steps during pregnancy is safe for baby and mother. My friend is 4 months pregnant and she lives on 2nd floor. She needs to climb around 35 - 40 steps daily 7 - 8 times a day. Does this cause any risk during first or second trimester?

    Please advice.

    Regards,
    Riya.

    Climbing stairs is a good exercise during pregnancy, but avoid doing it if you become very breathless. Climb slowly and take breaks if required.
