Abstract

This article will discuss the use of animal models in exercise and pregnancy research. Although the ultimate goal is understanding mechanisms of change as a result of maternal exercise as they apply to pregnant women and the fetus, animal models deserve a place in research because of ethical constraints placed on experimentation on pregnant women. The risk identified through animal research should not be ignored if safe exercise guidelines are to be recommended to women who wish to engage in exercise during pregnancy.
