Active Pregnancy

Being active during pregnancy and after childbirth brings with it a host of physical and mental benefits, including a reduction in the risk of developing gestational diabetes, a reduction in depression and a quicker return to pre-pregnancy weight in the postpartum period.

Being physically active during pregnancy is safe. In fact, the more active and fit a woman is during pregnancy, the easier it will be for her to adapt to her changing shape pre and post pregnancy.

To normalise an active lifestyle throughout motherhood, we recognise that everyone has an opportunity to promote physical activity.
