February flew by and we have an exciting March coming up.

Rain or shine we will be out and about.
Make time for you during this busy month. We have quite a variety of activities coming up, so you may notice some colour coding 😆

Join us on a Buggy Walk!

The Active Mums Club buggy walks are a great place to meet other new mums and mums-to-be, and the conversations both during the walk and after have been so valuable to many mums. The walks are pushchair friendly and have a café near by for that all important cuppa. We are also open to suggestions of new places to walk in the county, so if you have any great ideas, please let us know!

The walks are free to join and will be happening throughout the winter. In the case of inclement weather, a decision will be made on the day if the walk will continue. However we will always meet for a cuppa at the start/end point so even if the walk cannot go ahead please come and see us for a brew and a chat.

All walks can be found on our events page or facebook events page

Join our Active Mums Club Army

Walk leaders wanted...please!

Walk Leader inquiry

Do you have what it takes to join our new Active Mums Army?

In order to continue our walks in 2024 we are looking for new volunteer walk leaders who can deliver walks on behalf of the Active Mums Club. Mums, Grandma's, Dads even. Anyone who can support our mums to be active and sociable!

What does it entail?
Becoming a walk leader is quite simple! You will be required to take part in a 1 hour workshop which will enable you to have the knowledge needed to deliver a good walk. You can then decide when and where you want to deliver your walking group. Every week, fortnight or month, the choice is yours! All we ask you to do is give us notice so we can help to promote.

How do I inquire about becoming a walk leader?
Click the inquiry button and send us a message if you have any additional questions or want to be involved!

Move it March 🤩

This month we are going to focus on how we can get more movement into our everyday life.

Often when we talk about physical activity in a group or at an event people will look at me like I have 2 heads – on ya bike, as if I have time for a class or gym sesh when I'm constantly tired and about to pop or I've got a baby hanging off me 24/7.

But this is the misconception we are trying to over come to be physically active, it doesn't have to structured or take hours and hours, we want to help you find a way to move that is comfortable and fun for you.

-Park a bit further away

-Take the stairs where possible

-Stretch while you binging the latest series

-Do 10 squats while the kettle on/coffee machine/baby bottle is making.

All these things count towards your daily movement.

And if you can get a class or group in amazing 🤩

SO, lets share some ideas, keep an eye on social media, we are going to be setting a weekly challenge and sharing us completing it. Let's do it together.

Your Mental Health Matters

More info

Around 1 in 5 women experience a perinatal mental health problem during pregnancy or within the early postnatal years.

Here in Leicestershire, the Perinatal Mental Health specialist service provides care for women during pregnancy and up to one year after childbirth. Following an initial assessment, the service can offer various treatments either in homes, community locations, clinics or via video calls. The aim is to help mothers and parents get the support they need to enable their family to live a happy, healthy life together.

For more information about the importance of positive mental health during pregnancy and after the birth of your baby please click the more information box above.

We also have a page dedicated to on our website here.
