Better living service
Better Living Mums is a specialised healthy eating and exercise service designed to help ladies to control the weight during and after pregnancy.
We offer a friendly, supportive environment and work together with midwives to offer safe and effective exercise and healthy eating programmes that are specifically designed for pregnant and post-natal women.
Upon completion of the Better Living Mums Programme, ladies receive an Active Lifestyles membership card that entitles them to certain activities including Gym, Swimming and Exercise Classes across Calderdale at a reduced rate.
Courses take place at Leisure Centres in Calderdale and last for five weeks. Courses run as small groups or on a one-to one basis.
Gentle exercises, healthy eating, active labour, make friends, share experience and Midwife support.
Safe and progressive exercise, safe and healthy weight loss and make friends.
