Only one in two pregnant women say their doctor advised them about exercising, with more than half saying they had to raise the topic themselves, Australian research reveals.

Although many doctors, midwives and nurses “are uniquely positioned” to advise women about exercise during pregnancy, it’s possible that many don’t bring it up because they are unsure about what to recommend, researchers write in Women and Birth.
