New research out of Thomas Jefferson University published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology suggests that regular exercise while pregnant contributes to fewer pregnancy-related health conditions and lowers the risk of having a medically necessary C-section. The research, which analyzed data from nine previous studies of over 2,000 women in total, also suggests that exercising while pregnant does not increase the risk of pre-term birth—which may lead to conditions like cerebral palsy. Furthermore, researchers note that women who did not exercise had a higher incidence of gestational diabetes and hypertensive disorders when compared to those who exercised, underscoring the benefits of staying active throughout pregnancy.
