Australia who often have limited access to specialist health care services.3 Women in these communities rely more heavily on their MPs to provide antenatal care services including exercise advice and counselling. Previous research suggests that MPs’ knowledge of exercise during pregnancy is limited and that they might not be providing exercise advice to pregnant women.4,5 However, little is known about the specific advice that Australian MPs are providing pregnant women, or whether this advice is in accordance with current exercise during pregnancy guidelines. Thus, the aim of the present study was to explore the exercise advice pregnant women received from a sample of regionally based Australian MPs
