This is the second edition of a well-received, practice oriented,  multidisciplinary book filling the gap between evidence-based knowledge  on the benefits of physical activity and exercise during pregnancy and  postpartum and the implementation of exercise programs and related  health promotion measures in pregnant women.

Readers will find  up-to-date evidence on the psychological, social, physiological, body  composition, musculoskeletal, and biomechanical changes that occur  during pregnancy and their implications for physical activity and  exercise. Further, the authors equip the reader with the latest  guidelines and detailed description of exercise testing, prescription,  selection and adaptation for pregnant and postpartum women, including  those with clinical conditions.

This new edition has been  thoroughly updated, and includes additional chapters focused on the  pedagogical intervention in pre and postnatal exercise programs,  exercise prescription and adaptation during postpartum and diet  recommendations for the pregnant exerciser and athlete.

Written  by recognized experts in the field, the book aims to allay undue fears  regarding the consequences of exercising during pregnancy. Moreover, it  provides medical, sports, and fitness professionals both with the  knowledge and the practical expertise needed to offer an optimal  guidance on exercising to pregnant exercisers and athletes.
