Is it safe to ice-skate or roller blade during pregnancy?

No. Ice skating, in-line skating, horseback riding, gymnastics, downhill skiing, soccer, football, and similar sports can increase your chance of falling and should be avoided when you're pregnant.

Such activities could bring on contractions or cause placental abruption (tearing of the placenta away from your uterus), both of which can be dangerous to you and your baby – and could trigger preterm delivery. Even if you're experienced in these sports, you should skip them during your pregnancy.
