Mums' Zone

Mums' Zone is a holistic health and wellbeing intervention targeting inactive mums at risk of poor mental health. It aims to improve mental health and wellbeing by offering a programme (approx. 2 hours per week for 26 weeks) of physical activity and health and wellbeing support, messaging and signposting as well as an opportunity for mums to get together in a comfortable setting to aid social networking and peer support. A lot of research has been done highlighting the positive impacts of physical activity on both physical and mental health and studies have shown that mothers who seek help for perinatal mental health issues have better outcomes for themselves and their child.

Being a new parent can be a challenging time, and the most common health problem after someone has had a baby is a mental health problem, most often depression. Add to this the fact that the most likely time in anyone's life for having a severe mental health problem is the first few weeks after birth, and you can see why the emotional wellbeing of new mums is so vital. Research has shown that the effects of the mother's mental health both while pregnant and after birth, on their children's mental health can have an impact years into the future. With a strong link between maternal mental health and children's mental health, Mums' Zone provides a service to support mums with non-walkers. (Source NHS)
