Exercise may boost mood in pregnant womenA research was published in journal Psychology & Health suggests that exercise may improve the mood of pregnant women and help reduce their levels of fatigue.

Anca Gaston and Harry Prapavessis at the University of Western Ontario examined whether a four week exercise intervention programme would result in improvements in the psychological well-being of previously inactive pregnant women.
