New campaign promotes activity to pregnant women and new mums

This Girl Can is encouraging pregnant women and new mothers to get more active with through their ‘Active Mums Start With You’ campaign.

The campaign is being launched as a new Sport England survey shows that 64% of pregnant women or women with children under one have experienced nervousness or anxiety related to physical activity.

One of the main concerns is anxiety over what is and isn't safe to do when pregnant, but being active during pregnancy and postnatally can be hugely beneficial in supporting both the physical and mental health of mothers. This is why ‘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.

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. Find out more here.
