We've included links to a range of resources that you might find helpful. We're also keen to hear about your work in the field.

you'd like to share.

We have produced a series of activity-based resources packed with advice and top tips to support an active journey through pregnancy and beyond.

They can be downloaded and printed them for FREE. They are also a useful tool for starting conversations about activity.

We've worked with Dr Claire Spearing to produce two short

videographics based on the United Kingdom's Chief Medical Officers'

guidelines, designed specifically for pregnant and postnatal women.

We'd love you to share them. If you are interested in hosting these 

on your website or perhaps even displaying them in your waiting rooms,

please drop us an email to request.


We can also keep you informed if and when we update them.
