Baby Let’s Move 

Baby Let’s Move 

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!
