Women planning a pregnancy and pregnant women are advised to stay active. It is important to maintain a good fitness level in pregnancy that is consistent with pre-pregnancy fitness levels to encourage better well-being, help aches and pains, improve pregnancy weight management and reduce stress levels for mums-to-be. In addition, the developing baby will benefit from an active mum because of improved oxygen flow to the placenta.
Tommy's wants to see:
- raised awareness amongst women that exercise is safe and healthy during pregnancy
- an increase in the amount of women exercising during pregnancy
- an increase in the amount of women staying active in pregnancy
