New and expectant mothers are being helped to get active thanks to new free programmes from Our Parks, designed specifically for them.

Sport England have invested £311,000 of National Lottery money in Our Parks to develop, while working closely with London Sport, and their Couch to Fitness programmes.

The latest two are focussed on pre- and postnatal exercise and designed by experts to meet the needs of women in these stages of life, when being active comes with additional challenges.
