Medical experts (including the NHS, NICE and RCOG) agree that all healthy pregnant women should aim for at least 30 minutes exercise every day for the sake of their health and the health of their baby.
The biggest reason for giving up exercise, cited by just over half of the respondents, was ‘lack of energy’. But many of the women involved agreed that appropriate fitnesswear is a key issue. They simply didn’t feel comfortable exercising in clothes that didn’t fit, didn’t provide support and didn’t meet their needs as their body changed.
· 63% of respondents (including those who carried on exercising) said their bump felt unsupported
· 37% of women gave up exercise because their bump got in the way
· 31% were put off exercise because of ill-fitting fitnesswear and 47% stated that their fitnesswear didn’t meet their needs as their body changed.
