Key Research Interests

Exploring exercise behavior of pregnant women In Thailand  

Decline in level of exercise behaviour during pregnancy is recognized as a health problem in Thailand. Health policy aims to increase levels of exercise among pregnant women to improve maternal and infant health. My MPhil/PhD research is a mixed methods study which aims to explore the underlying reasons for reduced physical activity and exercise in pregnancy. This will be used to establish suitable programmes to increase awareness motivation to exercise among pregnant women supported by health professionals.
