The University of Western Ontario’s Dr. Michelle Mottola (Director, R. Samuel McLaughlin Foundation – Exercise and Pregnancy Lab, Faculty of Health Sciences) has partnered with the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU) on this exciting new project.
In it, Mottola gives information about exercise during pregnancy. This segment is about being medically prescreened and speaking to your health care provider, being able to exercise safely, and use the PARmed-X for pregnancy.
While the information contained in the materials is believed to be accurate and true, no responsibility is assumed by MLHU for its use.
