"This has been the best thing I have done for my health"

"I climbed a mountain on holiday - something I never thought I could achieve!"

"My husband and family are so delighted with the positive impact you have given me; I thank you for your inspiration"

"I feel that I've found myself again... I feel energised and youthful."

Physical Activity in Pregnancy

Keeping up your normal daily physical activity will not harm your unborn child; at least 30 minutes per day of moderate intensity activity is recommended. Moderate intensity physical activity means your heart rate should rise a little. You will feel a bit out of breath but still be able to hold a conversation.

Don't exhaust yourself, and remember you may need to slow down as your pregnancy progresses or if your doctor advises you to.
