I wouldn't be so bothered about someone who's been practicing for a while continuing to practice whilst pregnant, certainly not someone going for sandan. I'm more worried because she's a first timer, more chance of her perhaps losing balance, certainly less aware on the mat so may not be able to avoid someone falling infront of/ into her etc.
I think if it were me, I might council her to wait until after the birth and subsequent recovery. If she starts now, things are only going to get more difficult as the pregnancy progresses, so stopping practice is probably not that far away anyway.


Success is having what you want. Happiness is wanting what you have.
