Sport England has teamed up with ukactive to launch a series of online workouts to help pregnant woman and new mums be physically active at home. From yoga and Pilates videos you can follow, to videos focusing on general fitness, the This Mum Moves workouts are perfect for antenatal and postnatal women.
ukactive has developed the new website at a time when research commissioned from Savanta ComRes is showing that some adults in England, particularly women, are doing less physical activity during the current lockdown than they normally would, despite more than half of adults saying it's more important to be active now.
The new workouts form part of Sport England's Join the Movement campaign, which was launched in March to help people get and stay active at a time when people are staying at home a lot more. It encourages people to share how they’re getting active using #StayInWorkOut.
