We know there are misconceptions that being active during pregnancy carries a risk to mothers and their babies. Women often face criticism if they continue an active lifestyle, and many are told to 'take it easy'. We also know that there is little consistent advice and support for women who wish to stay active, especially those from poorer socio-economic backgrounds. We intend to change this!
Our aims are to remove traditional barriers and social stigmas, ensuring there is easily accessible provision in expertise, information and support for women who choose to be active throughout pregnancy and motherhood.
As a charity the Active Pregnancy Foundation intends to normalise active pregnancies. So join our movement and help us to change our culture, and improve the future health of our nation.
