I would really like to refrain from answering this question, just for the reason that it would be speculation, but I would like to help you get some clarity, therefore my opinion.
Exercise (walking in this case) do not usually induce labour in a healthy pregnancy, but can do so in a threatning miscarige. It is not possible to bruise a baby while pregnant, since the amniotic fluid is a very protective barrier between the unborn baby and the outside world, however, bruising can happen during the labour process and even more so with a breach delivery. I can therefore not give you any possible reason for the bruising apart from the fact that the baby might not have had enough clotting factors in her blood - a condition that is sometimes see in newborn babies and the reason why babies receive a vit K injection just after birth. The doctor who attended to the delivery would be able to tell you whether it was a difficult delivery that could have caused the bruising. Please be so kind as to contact the attending gynecologist and the baby's pediatrician to clarify.
