Exercise may boost mood in pregnant women

Tired, moody and pregnant? Get some exercise!
Exercise may improve the mood of pregnant women and help reduce their levels of fatigue, a new study has found.

The study, by Anca Gaston and Harry Prapavessis at the University of Western Ontario, examined whether a four week exercise intervention programme would result in improvements in
the psychological well-being of previously inactive pregnant women.

The results were clear, with participants reporting significant improvements in their mood during the programme.
Moreover, fatigue during pregnancy has been associated with increased risk of caesarean delivery.
