We’ve teamed up with Hywel Dda University Health Board to launch a new scheme to support mums-to-be have an active and healthy pregnancy.
The scheme known as ‘Baby Let’s Move’ provides a 16 week physical activity programme to help support expectant mothers maintain a healthy weight throughout pregnancy.
There are many benefits of Baby Let’s Move including;
- Better control of weight gain during pregnancy
- Enhances mood and self esteem
- Improves sleep and circulation
- Cope better with labor and delivery
- Meet new people and share your experiences
How can I get referred to the exercise referral scheme?
You will need to make an appointment with your midwife. If you are suitable for the scheme the midwife will then complete a referral form.
What happens once you have been referred?
You will be asked to attend an initial consultation at a time that’s convenient for you at Carmarthen, Llanelli or Ammanford Leisure Centre. The consultation will consist of introduction to the scheme, tour of the leisure centre and health assessment.
Will I be exercising alone and how often do I attend the referral classes?
You will exercising with others in a friendly environment in group based sessions throughout the 16 week programme.
Those who are referred will be encouraged to attend two sessions a week.
What are the costs involved?
The sessions are FREE!
