The Active Pregnancy Foundation

We support women and childbearing people to stay active throughout pregnancy and beyond, by providing expertise and advise, changing culture and challenging policy.

We believe in a whole systems approach based on clear and consistent evidence-based messages shared by all professionals so that pregnant and postnatal women feel reassured and empowered to make informed physical activity choices.

We know that women frequently come into contact with a range of professionals during pregnancy and following childbirth, but research has shown that there is a lack of clear and consistent physical activity information, which often leads to women turning to informal sources for guidance or stopping activity completely.

We also know that inactivity during pregnancy puts women at risk of continued inactivity, which means that they will be losing out on many of the physical and mental health benefits assorted with an active lifestyle. We want to change that, but we need your help to do it.
