Active Pregnancy aims to inform women of the health benefits of maintaining physical activity during and after pregnancy for women and their babies.

The Active Pregnancy programme also directs women to suitable activities which are available in their local leisure centres.

As part of the Active Pregnancy programme, Every Body Active coaches and Fitness consultants from leisure centres across the Council area have completed a Specialist Exercise Pre & Post Natal qualification in order to increase the provision of physical activities for pregnant women within leisure centres.

Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council recently received funding from the Northern Healthy Lifestyles Partnership to deliver specific exercise programmes for women during and after their pregnancy.  The funding will also be used to promote leisure centre programmes and classes at the following leisure centres:

  • Antrim Forum

  • Ballyearl Arts & Leisure Centre

  • Crumlin Leisure Centre

  • Six Mile Leisure Centre

  • Valley Leisure Centre
