    The main purpose of the ACTIVE PREGNANCY study is to analyse the effect of physical exercise programs, recreational and therapeutic, on gait biomechanics, functionality, morphology and on the prevention and treatment of low back pain, in women during pregnancy and post-partum. Other objectives are the prospective analysis of: quantification and distribution of external biomechanical load acting on the feet; alterations of morphology (mother and foetus/weight and position); the type and level of physical activity; as well as the analysis of; the intervention of abdominal muscles in pelvic stability and inter rectis distance; interaction of the level of physical activity, biomechanical parameters, morphology and pain; and the promotion of physical activity.
