BACKGROUND Previously, we reported that regular maternal aerobic exercise during pregnancy was associated with lower fetal heart rate (HR) and higher heart rate variability (HRV) at 36weeks gestation. We now report the effect of maternal exercise on infant HR and HRV in subjects who remained active in the study at the one-month follow up visit. AIMS We aimed to determine whether differences in fetal cardiac autonomic control related to maternal physical activity were an in utero phenomenon or… CONTINUE READING
