Lifestyle, pregnancy health and our little one’s futures all go hand in hand.
That’s the latest finding from Tommy’s, who have been conducting research into weight, diet and daily exercise, concluding that these can all have an impact on health during pregnancy and beyond – for both mum and baby.

The charity’s 5 Point Pregnancy Plan, in partnership with Bounty, aims to help mums, mums-to-be and families make healthy choices and give their little ones the best start in life.
There’s a range of information from the Tommy’s Stop and Swap plan giving ideas on how to have a healthy balanced diet in pregnancy, giving up smoking, exercise and weight management and mental health, as well as that all-important nutrition – don’t forget to take folic acid and your vitamin D supplements!
We would like to ask you, as a Bounty member, to commit to one or more of the five pledges to help give your baby the very best start in life.
You can also watch Tommy’s new film to understand why being active during pregnancy is not only safe, but important for you and your baby or download the pregnancy and post-birth well-being plan to help calm any worries you may have or may be finding difficult to say out loud.
