Study: Exercise during pregnancy could boost baby’s brain development
According to a new study, women who exercise during pregnancy could boost their newborn’s brain development.
Researchers at the University of Montreal studied 18 pregnant women, 10 of whom exercised at a moderate pace three times a week for 20 minutes.
Experts measured their babies’ brain activity when they were between eight and 12-days-old.
They found the children born to mothers who exercised had more mature brain activity, suggesting they developed faster than the other children.
Outside experts warn that the study is small and that vigorous exercise is not recommended for pregnant women.
