The benefits of staying active during and after pregnancy

There are so many benefits to exercising during pregnancy. Gentle activity can help with some of the side effects you may be experiencing such as pelvic pain, back ache, cramps and swollen feet. It can even help you sleep better. For support, download our handout

Getting active after birth can lead to faster postnatal recovery and give you the opportunity to socialise and meet other new mothers. For support, download our handout
