Abstract

Reports on advice about exercise for women with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are reviewed and how exercise could influence long-term cardiovascular risk is assessed. Exercise in pregnancy seems to be beneficial in pregnancies complicated by hypertension. However, the intensity of the exercise to be recommended remains unclear. Further research is required to inform national and international guidelines for women who develop hypertension during pregnancy.
