Being Active is About Choice

We support women to stay active throughout pregnancy and beyond,

by providing expertise & advice, changing culture & challenging policy.

Our Mission  

We want every pregnant & postnatal woman

to be given the support & advice they need to be active.

Why We Do It

  • Only 3-15% of women meet the recommended guidelines for physical activity during pregnancy

  • We know mums & mums-to-be receive inconsistent, inaccurate and sometimes dangerous information

  • Only 8% of Personal Trainers have a Pre & Postnatal qualification

  • There isn’t consistent advice & support for women who wish to stay active, especially those from poorer socio-economic backgrounds.
