"We believe these changes may explain how exercise improves the metabolism of the obese mother during pregnancy and, in turn, may prevent her babies from developing early signs of type 2 diabetes after birth," Amanda Sferruzzi-Perri, a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow from the Centre for Trophoblast Research in the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge, (https://www.cam.ac.uk/research/news/exercise-in-pregnancy-improves-health-of-obese-mothers-by-restoring-their-tissues-mouse-study-finds) said in a statement.
