Exercise during Pregnancy – patient information to assist informed consent

This patient education pamphlet provides information on appropriate physical exercise for women during pregnancy. Topics discussed include: the changes to the body that occur during pregnancy, how pregnancy affects the body’s response to exercise and why it is important to exercise safely during pregnancy.

This leaflet can be a useful tool for pregnant women as exercise guidelines are discussed in detail. These guidelines include avoiding saunas and spas, limiting exercise in hot climates, exercising cautiously, and the benefit of pelvic floor exercises. Complications that can occur during pregnancy, such as anaemia, back pain and preterm contractions, are also discussed.

Exercise during pregnancy is described in plain English to assist the patients’ understanding of health information and to help patients make informed decisions. The Obstetrics and Gynaecology patient information leaflets are printed in five-colour on high-quality A4 sheets.
