Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a prevalent pregnancy-related complication characterized by abnormal maternal glucose metabolism, leading to adverse pregnancy outcomes and long-term health implications. This review aims to investigate the effects of maternal physical activity during pregnancy on various aspects of GDM. It seeks to provide valuable insights into strategies for reducing the risk and severity of GDM, managing complications, and improving the overall health of both mother and fetus during pregnancy. To achieve this, we conducted a comprehensive literature search across various databases, using specific keywords related to GDM, exercise, physical activity, pregnancy, and gestational diabetes. The findings emphasize the potential of maternal physical activity as a promising strategy for preventing and managing GDM. Personalized exercise programs, supervised by qualified professionals, play a pivotal role in ensuring the safety and effectiveness of exercise during pregnancy. Adopting a holistic approach to GDM management, which includes physical activity, is crucial for enhancing the health outcomes of both the mother and the child. This review contributes to our understanding of the role of exercise in mitigating the risk and severity of GDM and its positive impact on overall maternal and fetal well-being.
