This article is a brief overview of a vast area of interest, in which we are learning that women can be encouraged to help their bodies cope with the physiological adaptations of pregnancy, and to enjoy what is usually a very special time in their lives. Although the studies carried out have only been very small, moderate exercise has not shown any harmful effects in healthy pregnant women, and these findings encourage us, as healthcare professionals, to support women in their choice to exercise during pregnancy, with known beneficial outcomes for both mother and baby.
