Concerning methods, 120 women constituted the sample of the study, comprised of recruited purposive and divided into three groups: 32 pregnant women using antenatal gymnastics twice a week for eight weeks, 48 sedentary pregnant women and 40 sedentary non-pregnant women. The measurement of spinal curvatures took place at the beginning and the end of the study using with flexible ruler of mark Morn sun. The results showed that thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis have increased and are significantly different between the three groups. These results suggest that prenatal gymnastics during pregnancy acts on the curvatures of the spine minimizing their emphasis. Summary During pregnancy, the female body undergoes postural changes.
