At MoreLife, we provide two different health and wellbeing programmes. MUMS2B for women during pregnancy and 4MUMS for women up to 24 months after giving birth.
Our programmes provide a psychologically informed approach and focus on the importance of living healthy lifestyles.
Our flexible programme focuses on balanced health behaviours and the prevention of gestational diabetes – calories are not counted! Our friendly team will help support you to make balanced and healthy choices around food and exercise, which will help reduce some risks for pregnant mums (e.g. gestational diabetes).
Each Mum to be will:
- Access a minimum of four 20 minute 1-2-1 phone consultations with a variety of time slots available throughout the week. Our flexible appointments can be done over the phone with your MUMS2B practitioner and will normally be around 20 minutes.
- Choose from a variety of topics you would like to learn about and to suit your personal needs.
The focus of the 4MUMS programme is on postnatal weight loss and prevention of Type 2 Diabetes (particularly for those who had Gestational Diabetes). This programme runs alongside our community weight management programmes and Mums can choose to attend either a 10-week Family Programme (with children) or 12-week Adult Programme (without children).
4MUMS is open for mums up to 24 months after giving birth with a BMI of 27.5kg/m2 or above. The programme includes four additional 1-2-1 sessions with a Weight Management Practitioner and you will also receive your own interactive E-Pack.
