Self-efficacy beliefs and general motivation as determinant to exercise behaviour by pregnant women attending antenatal clinics in the University College Hospital, Ibadan (Published)

This study examined self-efficacy beliefs and general motivation as determinant to exercise behaviour by pregnant women attending antenatal clinics in the University College Hospital, Ibadan. Descriptive survey research design was used to collect data from respondents. The sample comprised 250 respondents who were selected from the antenatal Clinic in University College Hospital Ibadan. The results revealed that self-efficacy beliefs and general motivation are determinants of exercise behaviour among the pregnant women. It is therefore recommended that more efforts should be made towards educating pregnant women especially those who are not yet participating in physical activities during pregnancy.
