You're pregnant, are you sure you should be doing that?

You must log in to watch this webinar recording.

This webinar identifies and describes the key evidence-based messages and recommendations advocated by the UK Chief Medical Officers on physical activity during pregnancy. The webinar describes what we know about the current levels of activity within this pregnant community. The presentation will focus primarily on sharing recent research regarding the barriers and attitudes surrounding this behaviour.

Possible solutions and projects to address physical activity levels for pregnant women and their transition to becoming mothers are discussed. These insights should allow more confidence and better provision of assistance for those people involved in supporting physical activity behaviour during pregnancy for mothers and families.

Dr Mills alongside her collaborator Dr De Vivo (BASES accredited), has been involved in a number of projects focusing on physical activity during pregnancy. Most recently a partnership with ukactive secured a substantial grant to develop and deliver an intervention to support physical activity maintenance during pregnancy.  Dr Mills and Dr De Vivo have also been involved in updating the physical activity during pregnancy information on a national resource used in undergraduate teaching on health and medicine programs across the UK. Dr Mills has supervised three doctoral level students researching aspects of this topic area and continues to develop industry partnerships and projects to address physical activity issues during and post pregnancy.
