Pregnancy in Netball

Women are increasingly seeking to continue participation in sports, such as netball, throughout their pregnancy. Netball Victoria is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable environment for all its members, including pregnant participants.

There are many positive outcomes from continuing physical activity during and after pregnancy, however responses to exercise can vary with pregestational maternal fitness levels, co-existing medical conditions and/or pregnancy complications. All women are encouraged to seek individual medical advice before participating.
