AMC - Newsletter June 2023

Welcome to June 😎

Hello, its great to have you on board with the Active Mums Club.

Whatever stage you are at during your pregnancy or post natal journey, we hope that we are able to help you make informed choices about what, how and when you can be active.

We want to provide you with safe and trusted information about being active and to connect you to local sessions in your area. Visit our website for the latest information about sessions in your area, or other ways to be active -

Are you pregnant and unsure if you should be active?

Take the Active Questionnaire for pregnancy

More Information

Being active during pregnancy has many physical and mental health benefits and is generally safe for most women. But knowing whether it is safe for YOU personally still leaves many women confused and even scared.

Pre-screening is an important first step in ensuring safe and enjoyable engagement with physical activities. The Get Active Questionnaire for Pregnancy (GAQ-P) has been designed by the Active Pregnancy Foundation to identify the small number of women who need to consult with a healthcare professional before they begin or continue to be physically active, and to help the majority of healthy pregnant women overcome any concerns they might have about getting or staying active. Ultimately, this self-administered pre-screening tool helps to empower women to take ownership of their health and wellbeing during their pregnancy.

New Class Alert - Loughborough

Let's Get Moving at Home

Active Mums Club 'At Home' series has been created for you to try workouts, exercise routines and stretches at home. We know that sometimes you want to get moving but for whatever reason you cant get out and about that day. The series is designed to help fill that gap for you, some are live follow along video's and some have the instructions on the videos to follow.

A new video will be released every month exclusively to our club members first, through our newsletters. They will also feature on our YouTube channel so if there is ever any you missed or want to try again they are all there for you.

Always make sure you warm up properly before doing any exercise and stretch after.

The video this month is a full body workout, if you are short on time this one is great and can be extended if you want to make it harder. Suitable for after birth, once you have had your GP checks. Follow along with the video. Let us know how you find it 😊
