In other news, Rwanda has launched a public exercise programme aimed at improving the health of pregnant women.

YEN.com.gh understands that the women revealed they enjoyed the programme so much that they are looking forward to the next one.

According to the organizers of the event, they hope to change the myth about the bodies of pregnant women.

This, they explained, is because it is believed that a pregnant woman needs to halt every activity that involves physical effort.

Per a report by peacefmonline.com, Libérée Uwizeyimana who is eight months pregnant admitted that prior to the event, she never exercised during pregnancy.
