Impact and Evaluation

Mums' Zone is a holistic health and wellbeing intervention targeting pregnant and new mums. It aims to improve mental health and wellbeing by offering an weekly programme of physical activity and health and wellbeing support, messaging and signposting.

A lot of research has been done highlighting the positive impacts of physical activity on mental health and studies have shown that women who seek help for perinatal and postnatal 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)

By taking a collaborative approach with key partners such as Frimley Integrated Health Service and Home-Start Slough, we can offer a diverse programme of support for pregnant women and new mums.
