Fit4Two: Investigating physical activity promotion among pregnant women in an Australian regional setting

posted on 08.12.2017, 00:00 by Melanie HaymanMelanie Hayman
Participation in regular physical activity (PA) during pregnancy is associated with a variety of health benefits for both the mother, and her unborn child. Despite these benefits, limited research suggests that very few pregnant women in Australia are meeting current exercise during pregnancy guidelines. Additionally, the majority of the research that has been undertaken examining exercise behaviours of Australian pregnant women has been conducted in metropolitan and urban areas. Thus, very little is known about the exercise behaviours of Australian pregnant women residing in rural, regional and remote regions.
