Researchers at the University of Colorado and the University of Washington are conducting a survey research project about women’s exposure to exercise and high altitude during pregnancy.
Their goal is to use the information obtained in the survey results to provide advice to physicians and their pregnant patients who want to travel to high elevations. Currently very little is known about the safety of travel and exercise at high altitude during pregnancy. Furthermore, although exercise is considered safe during pregnancy some activities, such as downhill skiing, are discouraged and many women modify their exercise regimes during pregnancy.
Eligible participants are women who have completed a pregnancy and are physically active. You do not need to have been to high altitude during pregnancy to participate. If you are currently pregnant with your first pregnancy, please wait until after delivery to complete the survey.
