This Mum Moves is an initiative developed by ukactive in collaboration with a range of expert partners passionate about empowering pregnant and postpartum women to lead healthy and active lifestyles.


Since the release of the UK Chief Medical Officers’ infographic and guidance on physical activity for pregnant women and postpartum (2019) this area has received substantial attention. However, we know that there is more to be done to ensure that policy effective filters down into practice.

To tackle this challenge we have developed and are piloting accessible, evidence based resources, designed for healthcare professionals to use to support their practice.

We have also created an information hub  for pregnant women and new mums hosted by project partners Best Beginnings, a charity working to give every child in the UK the best start in life.



Join the thousands of women finding ways to be active during pregnancy and after childbirth and let us know what activities work for you!
