Abstract
Introduction: The incidence of depression is high during the perinatal period. This mood disorder can have a significant impact on the mother, the child and the family. Objective: To examine the effect of an exercise programme during pregnancy on the risk of perinatal depression. Methods: Healthy women who were <16 weeks pregnant were randomly assigned to two different groups. Women in the intervention group participated in a 60 min exercise programme throughout pregnancy, 3 days per week, which was conducted from October 2014 to December 2016. The Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Scale was used to measure the risk of depression at the beginning of the study (12?16 weeks), at gestational week 38 and at 6 weeks postpartum. Results: One hundred and twenty-four pregnant women were allocated to either the intervention (IG=70) or the control (CG=54) group. No differences were found in the percentage of depressed women at baseline (20% vs 18.5%) (?2=0.043; p=0.836). A smaller percentage of depressed women were identified in the IG compared with the CG at 38 gestational weeks (18.6% vs 35.6%) (?2=4.190; p=0.041) and at 6 weeks postpartum (14.5% vs 29.8%) (?2=3.985; p=0.046) using the per-protocol analysis. No significant differences were found using the intention-to-treat analyses, except in the multiple imputation analysis at week 38 (18.6% vs 34.4%) (?2=4.085; p=0.049). Conclusion: An exercise programme performed during pregnancy may reduce the prevalence of depression in late pregnancy and postpartum.
