informative webinars 
s part of the “Care and improvement of the quality of life of pregnant women. Physical activity during pregnancy” project, two informative sessions were held for the pregnant population, with the aim of promoting healthy habits related to the practice of physical activity during pregnancy. These informative sessions were disseminated in health centers collaborating with AFIPE in this research project.
Likewise, these sessions raised new research questions thanks to the opportunity to debate directly with the pregnant population. These issues were included in some of the presentations of the International Postgraduate Seminar that was held in May 2022, under the same research project. 

Pregnant women interested in knowing information easily applicable to pregnancy attended this webinar. The objective was to expand knowledge of such basic topics (but at the same time essential for health) such as hygiene or postural education, the pelvic floor and generalities and/or basic recommendations for physical activity.

After the presentations organized by the professionals who collaborate in the project, a question time was given to the audience. Most of the questions were directed around the performance of exercises during pregnancy, or the correct work of postural hygiene, demonstrating the need for dissemination and transfer of information to the pregnant population.

After the success of the first webinar, and after the lack of knowledge about exercises or activities suitable to be carried out during pregnancy to be active at this stage, the researchers focused this information session on the detailed explanation of key elements when doing physical activity, such as intensity, time, training volume, load and frequency, among others.

After a round of questions, they concluded that although the benefits of exercise in any type of population are widely known, there is still a great stigma about its performance during pregnancy (in addition to the lack of accessibility to information by the population), making the research work that this group and project do more necessary.
