The Southern Health and Social Care Trust antenatal team is running a new walking group ‘Walking Bumps.’
Launching in September, Walking Bumps, is available for all pregnant women in the Southern area giving mums-to-be the opportunity to be active, speak with maternity staff and make friends.
Gemma Winter, Antenatal Education Co-Ordinator Midwife says, “’The antenatal walks are facilitated by maternity staff to give people the opportunity to talk to their healthcare provider outside of the clinical setting.
“Walking during pregnancy has many positive effects on physical health and mental wellbeing of both parent and baby.
“We hope these walks will give people the opportunity to meet new parents-to-be, form friendships and connections.”
Friday 15 September 6-8pm
Saturday 16 September 2-4pm
