Pregnancy in Sport

The ASC, with Sport Industry Australia, hosted the National Forum on pregnancy in sport in Sydney on 1 August 2001. Participants from all aspects of sport in Australia, including government, non-government, health, legal and industry sectors, took part. This resource is based on the conclusions of that forum, and on other expert contributions.

The Pregnancy in sport - guidelines for the Australian sporting industry are available for free as a related download below.
