Pre & post-natal physical activity
Empowering Lincolnshire Mums to be happier and healthier
Staying active while pregnant has been shown to support a healthy pregnancy and postpartum recovery. That’s why our pre and post-natal programme is designed to give healthcare professionals in maternity services the awareness and confidence they need to promote the benefits of physical activity – both during and after pregnancy.
Working with One You Lincolnshire’s Health in Pregnancy team, Better Births Lincolnshire, United Lincolnshire Hospital Trust (ULHT) and Lincolnshire County Council, we 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.
Our work also includes connecting pre and post-natal women to relevant opportunities to be active and signposting them to local support groups.
We are currently working with Social Change UK on a research project to gain insight into people's experiences of physical activity during pregnancy and beyond.
