Exercise improves the health and well-being of both the mother and infant during pregnancy and in the postpartum period. Pregnancy and the postpartum period are viewed as “teachable moments” where women are motivated to change their habits to improve the health of their babies and themselves. This unique period of time provides an opportunity for healthcare professionals, specifically physiotherapists, to educate women on the importance of adopting healthy lifestyle interventions, which include exercise.
In women, physical activity during pregnancy and the postpartum period confers benefits for the following maternal and fetal health outcomes
- Decreased cesarean births and operative vaginal delivery
- Better postpartum recovery
- Prevention of postpartum depression
- Prevention of excessive gestational weight gain (GWG)
- Reduced risks of obesity in pregnancy
- Reduced pregnancy complications such as pre-eclampsia, gestational hypertension, gestational diabetes (GDM), fetal macrosomia, and low birth weight.

balance, the diameter of a woman's pelvis is decreased. Chiropractors call this a spinal misalignment, or a 'subluxation'.
enlarge symmetrically. When the pelvis is subluxated, the uterus will torque and reduce the maximum amount of space for the developing baby. In some cases, this restricts the baby's movement during pregnancy and can prevent the baby from getting into the best possible position for birth.
