What is This Mum Moves?

This Mum Moves is an educational programme which aims to empower women to make informed physical activity choices throughout pregnancy and beyond by providing professionals with the tools to discuss physical activity during the childbearing years.

 

The programme has been co-produced by women and professionals, piloted in five areas of England, and evaluated independently over the last three years. From 2022, the programme is being delivered in partnership by The Active Pregnancy Foundation and Institute of Health Visiting (iHV).

Together we want to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of pregnant women and new mums by reducing the decline in physical activity levels during and after pregnancy.
