Abstract Regular aerobic exercise has been demonstrated to be safe for pregnant and postpartum women with uncomplicated pregnancies. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of the Pregnant Soldier Wellness Program (PSWP), a physical exercise program specifically designed for low-risk pregnant soldiers, on indicators of military readiness, fitness, wellness, and pregnancy outcomes without placing them at increased risk for complications of pregnancy. Pregnancy outcomes were compared to a cohort of tri-service active duty pregnant military personnel who did not participate in a structured exercise program.
