“The IOC assembled an international expert committee to review the literature on physical activity and exercise (1) during pregnancy and (2) after childbirth, using rigorous systematic review and search criteria.” Sixteen experts addressed three aims: 1) “Summarise common conditions, illnesses and complaints that may interfere with strenuous exercise and competition, during pregnancy and after childbirth”; 2) provide recommendations for exercise training during pregnancy and after childbirth, for high-level regular exercisers and elite athletes”; and 3) “identify major gaps in the literature that limit the confidence with which recommendations can be made”.
