In brief: Yes

Walking is an excellent exercise during pregnancy.
Especially if by high risk you mean obesity, diabetes or high blood pressure. It will help keep your weight down, manage your cravings and end up with a smaller baby to deliver. For some high risk diagnosis, especially those requiring bedrest , walking is not possible. Discuss this with your doctor. Good luck!
