Maternity Image

The more active you are during pregnancy the more easily you will be able to avoid putting on too much weight, cope with labour, get back to your normal weight and fitness once you have had your baby and cope with being a busy mum with a baby and then toddler.

Group activity is also a great way to connect with others and build long-lasting friendships.

What services can I access?

During your booking in appointment with your midwife you will receive lots of information.  You can then also apply for a Maternity Exemption Certificate which entitles you to free NHS prescriptions and more. This is also evidence to access discounted leisure memberships with local leisure providers GLL and Writhlington Leisure.

What activities are available?

There may be a range of local activities taking place in your local area.  Here is a list of some of the sessions available at local leisure centres.
