 Regular Pre-Pregnancy Exercise Helps Ward Off Pelvic Girdle Pain

Adding to the benefits of regular exercising, a team of researchers has revealed that regularly exercising before pregnancy protects against so-called pelvic girdle pain as the fetus grows.

Lead author Katrine Mari Owe of the Norwegian Institute of Public Health said, "Between 20-40% of pregnant women experience some pelvic girdle pain late in pregnancy, associated with joint and ligament changes in their body caused by the growing baby. Though the long-term effect of exercise on pain remains unclear, women who exercise regularly pre-pregnancy are more likely to continue throughout pregnancy. Even women who exercised only once or twice a week before pregnancy had lower risk of developing pelvic girdle pain compared to those who did not exercise at all."
