Local Support and Advice

Being a healthy weight in pregnancy: Although you will be putting on weight in pregnancy as your baby grows, limiting the amount of extra weight gain in pregnancy will improve your health and your baby's, both now and in the future. Managing your weight in pregnancy is not about dieting or trying to lose weight. It's about looking after yourself and your baby by eating healthily and keeping active.
The Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust offers personalised one to one support for women who want to maintain a healthy weight in pregnancy. For more information, please contact the Health in Pregnancy Support Service on 07810 506935.
