About this book

This new SpringerBrief in Physiology explores the newest research findings on how exercise influences the fetus in utero and beyond.  Physiology of Prenatal Exercise and Fetal Development reviews the current findings of how maternal exercise throughout gestation influences fetal development of key organ systems, and also encompasses the relationship between maternal activity level and fetal, birth, and neonatal effects.  This information will help researchers and scientists better understand the physiological effects of exercise during pregnancy on offspring development.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This short book details the impact of maternal exercise on the developing baby. The purpose is to show the potential benefits and the absence of harm of expectant mothers engaging in light exercise in the perinatal period. This is a worthwhile objective and the author does a good job of achieving it. … There are few if any books detailing the impact of exercise in pregnancy, and this book has great potential.” (Anthony Shanks, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2012)
