2016년을 기준으로 우리나라의 출산율은 1.17명으로 세계 평균 2.5명에 비하여 매우 낮은 수준이다[1]. 더욱이 최근 들어 여성들 사 이에서 비혼에 대한 인식이 확산되면서 결혼을 포함한 출산에 대하 여 여성이 손해 보는 것이라는 부정적인 영향이 만연화되어 있다. 이러한 결혼에 대한 부정적인 인식과 함께 사회적, 경제적 요인으로 여성의 결혼 연령이 점차 늦어지고 있으며 이는 고연령 임신으로 이 어지고 있다[2]. 고연령 임신은 유산의 빈도가 높고 조기진통 또는 조산 등의 고위험 임신의 위험이 높기 때문에 임부의 불안도가 높 아 신체활동과 운동보다는 안정을 취하려는 경향이 크다.
