Due to the observational design of the study, no additional medical prescreens for exercise were needed. Further research is warranted to clearly identify the patterns of activity that are associated with healthy pregnancy outcomes. The amount of activity performed and the number of women meeting six different PA guidelines were evaluated. The SWA uses these sensors via the use of proprietary algorithms to predict the energy expenditure.


Thus, it is important to note that while these studies may not all be directly comparable to one another, the current study provides evidence to explain some of the inconsistencies in the literature and demonstrates the need for health outcomes research to provide pregnancy-specific guidelines for particular maternal and fetal outcomes.

Physical activity and public health: To date, no study has specifically evaluated the impact of different physical activity guidelines on the reported patterns of physical activity using an objective assessment tool evaluated for use in pregnancy. Additionally, all the daily activity was to be documented in a provided physical activity record to confirm activity while the monitor was not worn e.

Therefore, the higher percentage of women meeting guidelines 4 and 5 3 or 5 sessions of 30 minutes at week 35 than week vompendium is likely due to the combination of these two circumstances.

The different guidelines lead to a wide range of prevalence estimates and this has led to conflicting reports about activity patterns during pregnancy. Views on physical activity and exercise during pregnancy have taken on new meanings and implications throughout history.

The abstract of the guideline recommends that pregnant women engage in 30 minutes or more of moderate exercise a day on most, if not all, days of the week.

Lastly, physical activity was defined in the current study by any activity of at least moderate intensity.

At least 5 sessions of moderate-vigorous physical activity sustained for at least 30 minutes; Compendiu PA: Paediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology. The evaluation of multiple guidelines, the use of an objective monitor that has been evaluated for use in pregnancy, and the longitudinal design contribute novel research findings regarding the assessment of prenatal physical activity. Canadian Journal of Applied Physiology.

A limitation of the current study is the differing number of women analyzed at week 18 and week 35 of pregnancy.
