Large Study Concludes That Moderate Exercise and Healthy Diet Reduces Risk Of C-Section And Diabetes During Pregnancy.

A recent study published in The BMJ, involving more than 50 researchers from 41 institutions, found that half of women of childbearing age worldwide are overweight or obese. The study found that 150 minutes of moderate intensity activity every week will help reduce the risk of diabetes during pregnancy and also the risk of requiring a caesarean section.

According the Professor Shakila Thangaratinam from QMUL’s Barts Research Center for Women’s Healthy, “[exercise]…should be part of routine advice in pregnancy, given by practitioners as well as midwives.”
