ABSTRACT

Background & Purpose: The association among an increase in normal physical activity and a reduction in the risk of high blood pressure is properly documented for non-pregnant humans. it's been cautioned that exercising might also help prevent pre-eclampsia and its complications. The Aim of this work is to provide cumulative data about the effect of aerobic exercise regimen on in uncomplicated pregnant women. Methods: A systematic search was performed of PubMed, Cochrane library Ovid, Scopus & Google scholar to identify Obstetrics and Gynecology RCTs, clinical trials, and comparative studies, which studied the outcome of Exercise group versus Control group of pregnant women. A meta-analysis was done using fixed and random-effect methods. The primary outcome of interest was gestational hypertensive disorders. Secondary outcomes were rates of gestational hypertension and preeclampsia. Results: A total of 6 studies were identified involving 1448 pregnant women, with 785 pregnant women in Exercise group, and 663 pregnant women in Control group. Regarding primary outcome measures, fixed-effects model of the meta-analysis study showed significant decrease in gestational hypertensive disorders in Exercise group compared to Control group (p < 0.05). Regarding secondary outcome measures, fixed-effects model of the meta-analysis study showed significant decrease in gestational hypertension in Exercise group compared to Control group (p = 0.016). The fixed-effects model of the meta-analysis study showed non-significant difference in preeclampsia between the 2 groups (p > 0.05). Conclusion: To conclude, Aerobic exercise during pregnancy, as compared with being more sedentary, is associated with a significantly reduced risk of gestational hypertensive disorders overall.
