Abstract

Extract Increasing physical activity (PA) behaviours among Australian pregnant women is recognised as a national health priority. This priority arises from the well-established link between physical activity during pregnancy and health benefits for both mother and her unborn child. Despite these benefits, research suggests that <35% of Australian pregnant women are currently meeting exercise during pregnancy guidelines[3] which recommend an accumulation of at least 150 min of moderate-vigorous PA per week, consisting of both aerobic and resistance-based activity.
