New Parents

10686403 TGC Pregnant Yoga SH01 001 RGB 72dpi1Congratulations on your pregnancy, or on becoming a new parent.

At tmactive, we want to encourage and support pregnant women and new mums in accessing physical activity opportunities and healthy lifestyle advice in Tonbridge & Malling.

Keeping active during pregnancy and after childbirth will help you adapt to your changing shape and keep you feeling good, relaxed and energised through your new journey of motherhood. Evidence also shows that active women are less likely to experience problems in later pregnancy and labour.

Physical activity is not dangerous for your baby and keeping up your normal daily exercise (running, yoga, dance, walking) is fine and recommended for as long as you feel comfortable. #thismumcan
