Conseils donnés par les médecins généralistes sur l’initiation et la poursuite du sport de loisir durant la grossesse : enquête de pratique dans l’arc alpin

Abstract : Introduction: Practicing regular sports activity during pregnancy is recommended, and is proven to bring considerable benefits for the health of the mother and the child. Recently, guidelines have been published to define the recommendations regarding physical activities during pregnancy. The aim of this work was to study the habits of general practitioners (GP) in the Alpine arc in regard of the advice given to patients concerning the practice of sports activity during pregnancy, in order to assess the relevance of organising training sessions on this subject. The secondary objectives of this study were to broadcast the guidelines to general practitioners and to recommend solutions to doctors’ requests. Method: An observational, descriptive and analytical study was carried by means of e-mail surveys between November and December 2019. Results : 275 samples were analysed. 8% (95%CI [5.09-11.64]) of GP mentioned that pregnancy monitoring represents 10 to 30% of their total caseload. Very few of the practitioners were aware of the latest recommendations: 2% (95%CI [0.27-3.75]) knew about the French guidelines, while less than 1% (95%CI [0-1.90]) were aware of the latest international guidelines. Interestingly, 56% (95%CI [49.82-62.08]) of the survey respondents were willing to receive more information on the subject, and 47% (IC95% [41,79-53,96]) believed that assisting a training session on this topic would be beneficial. Conclusion: Conceiving a training session on sports activity during pregnancy intended for GP working in the Alpine arc seems relevant. This study has raised awareness among GP of this issue, and a summary of the guidelines will be sent to the study participants.
