Advice for Mums
Choose to Be Prepared
The Foundation has many important goals, but shaming women into becoming or staying active isn't one of them!
Being active, or not, is all about choice. Whether you decide to hire a Personal Trainer, go along to a pregnancy yoga class, or rest up and watch boxsets, we're here to empower you to make the right choice for you!
We do know staying active throughout your pregnancy will give you the best chance of a good recovery, whatever happens during your labour.
In many ways pregnancy is like running a marathon - in fact it's the most physically demanding experience your body will ever go through - and many women will go through it more than once!
You may choose to train for the 'marathon', or you may not. Some women will get through the whole experience without doing anything and still come out at the end in tip top condition. Many women will not.
So, this is why our mantra is "choose to be prepared" in whatever way that feels right for you.
We'll be working our hardest to ensure the Health & Fitness Industry are upskilled and resourced to enable them to provide appropriate advice, support and facilities. We want them to up their game, which is why we plan to launch our Baby Bumps Welcome Campaign at the end of 2020.
