Get Berkshire Active are committed to offering support and providing guidance to new Mums and those working with pregnant and postnatal women. Becoming a new parent can be a wonderful, but often challenging time, with mental and physical health taking a dip. Getting active has a huge benefit on overall wellbeing, including a reduction in depression, a boost in mental wellness, the potential for less complications during pregnancy and the ability to bounce back quicker after birth.
See below some information on the ways we're tackling this and helpful resources to aid in furthering the conversation. We are always keen to forge new partnerships in the maternity space and searching for new ways to support this objective, so please get in touch if you have ideas or questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
