is it safe to use a trampoline whilst pregnant?

[deleted account] ( 22 moms have responded )

can you use a trampoline whilst pregnant? Im only asking because there is a sign on my mums with a pregnant woman crossed out but i have also heard of people using them when they are pregnant so I'm confused because I thought it wasn't safe x thanksx

how do you mean no, do you mean that the baby cant fall out of you






im not a doctor either but jumping on a trampoline is not safe at all no matter how far along pregnant you are. and whoever said the baby can fall out of you is retarted, the baby wont fall out of you, youll either go into labor/early labor or have a miscarriage. why do you think you have to push while in labor, to make the baby come out cause they dont just fly out right away.

Doctor says the same safety risks apply to pregnant women as everyone else- the risk of falling! And that risk of course would be more detrimental for a pregnant woman, just like falling any other time when your pregnant. There isn't actually anything risky having to do with the actual baby and your body's ability to handle the jumping- it's the same type of exercise as running and has te same effect on your body. And just like all your other exercising- you don't have to give it up while your pregnant unless you have medical reasons and conditions why you need to. Pregnancy IS NOT a disability people

I dont think its recommended. My Mum (was midwife) made me give up volleyball because the impact of jumping around isnt good during pregnancy. If your questioning it then there is doubt - and if in doubt dont do it. Thats my logic.

the baby can fall out if you jump to hard so it isnt safe





does this depend on how far along you are though?





between 6-9 months your waters can rupture and the impact of jumping can make you go into labour. before than you can fall and miscarry the baby.

Hi Jade, when I was pregnant my doctor advised me not to go on our boat because the bumps could potentially dislodge the placenta from the walls of my uterus...thus causing a miscarrage...I would think that the force of jumping on a tramp would be similar to the bumps on a boat... Just a thought :)

I just have to post that I find this funny in an ironic sense, cause the day b4 I went into labor at 37 weeks 5 days I jumped on my in-laws tramp. Not really jumped but bounced myself some. I wouldn't reccomend it though. But it seemed to do the trick for me!

yeah i know thats what baffled me when i read it! I was only wondering about the jumping after reading a friends status online saying she had been on her trampoline and i know shes pregnant and then i saw the symbol on my mums and i was like hang on!

I don't think she literally meant the baby would fall out of you, but that you could have a miscarriage or go into premature labor. A baby cannot just fall out. First of all your cervices is to small for the baby to just fall out secondly pregnant women have a mucus plug to keep from leaking amniotic fluid.



I wouldn’t recommend jumping on a trampoline.

When i was about 14 weeks i was babysitting my sisters kids and didn't even really think about it and jumped with the "little kids" so i didn't jump hard or much....just enough to bounce the little kids.....nothing happened to me....thank god....but i wouldn't try it....expecially if the lable says no pregnant women.....better to be on the safe side of things....if i would have really thought about it i never would have even jumped with the little kids....and they are a source of a large number of injuries in the US.....the one that i bought my sisters kids has the netting around it...so there is less chance that you would fall off....and a padded cover over the springs around the edge....still i wouldn't consider it safe......but my sister and i agreeded that i could buy them one....and they love it....

I don't think it's ever safe to jump on a trampoline. Those things are death traps. Or at least a good source of injury. :/

Jumping on a trampoline is unsafe for pregnancy after the first trimester and maybe before then. Any activity that can cause a jarring or impact on your uterus should not be done. It can cause miscarrage or preterm labor. when jumping your body absorbs the shock and this is no good. Even with a small baby bump any pressure put on it could do damage. better to be safe then sorry

i wouldn't do it if i were you. i'm sure there are people who did it and it was fine, but there were others who either went into labor or had a miscarriage because the embryo was shaken too much. every body is different (i'm sure you've heard this cliche phrase a million times) so what's perfectly fine for one, may be detrimental to another and i don't think you want to find out the hard way which category you fall into :). good luck!

I think it depends how far along you are. If you're newly pregnant, or with a small bump, I don't think it should be a problem. However, if you're far along you may want to avoid it because it could put you into premature labour. I was ignorant to this also, and when I was 36 weeks my sister asked me if I could still jump. I jumped on the spot once, and went into labour the next day.
