If you're a very good tennis player, it probably is safe.

Playing tennis during pregnancy

But the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends avoiding sports with a high likelihood for contact or falling — and that includes tennis.

One of the concerns with racquet sports such as tennis is that they often involve rapid changes in direction.

With the changes in your center of gravity during pregnancy, these rapid twists and turns could make you more prone to falling.

If you fall you could start bleeding if the placenta detaches from the uterus, or you could begin having contractions.

Either event can place the fetus at risk of premature delivery.
