Weigh to a healthy pregnancy
This leaflet was developed by the PHA to introduce the Weigh to a health pregnancy programme, a weight management programme for pregnant women with a high body mass index (BMI). The programme offers extra support from midwives, dietitian and physiotherapist with the aim of keeping weight gain in pregnancy within the healthy range in order to reduce the risk of pregnancy complications for mother and baby.
It is available only to women who have been referred to the programme. It is accompanied by a booklet for healthcare professionals to complete when booking women onto the programme.
