The campaign comes as a new survey commissioned by Sport England, showing that 64% of pregnant women or women with children under one year have experienced nervousness or anxiety related to physical activity.
Active Mums Starts With You is encouraging GPs, midwives and health visitors to proactively talk to and advise pregnant women and new mothers about activity and provide advice if they're unsure of what to do.
Working with One You Lincolnshire’s Health in Pregnancy team, Better Births Lincolnshire, United Lincolnshire Hospital Trust (ULHT) and Lincolnshire County Council, Active Lincolnshire are championing this campaign to help equip healthcare professionals, practitioners and physical activity providers with consistent messaging for new and expectant mothers, encouraging them to remain as active as possible.
The campaign features imagery of pregnant women and new mothers getting active in a variety of dynamic, but safe, ways and links to a wide range of resources and training materials that support healthcare professionals to have these conversations.
These resources include training developed as part of the This Mum Moves project which is believed could be key in giving pregnant women and new mums the confidence to be active.

"The significant barrier we want to tackle with the campaign is that women often aren't clear on what is and isn't safe to participate in and are often nervous about returning to being fully active after having a baby."
