Start4Life partners Hollywood film to support healthier pregnancies

The latest phase of the Start4Life campaign has launched with cinema advertising and a partnership with the Hollywood film: ‘What to expect when you’re expecting’, to help mothers-to-be have healthier pregnancies. The partnership with Start4Life explores many of the issues parents-to-be experience and encourages them to protect the health of their baby during pregnancy by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Start4Life adverts are running in all cinemas where the film is being shown.

Post Pregnancy

‘Being Happy & Healthy: Post Pregnancy’ is aimed at new mothers and recognises that for many new mums there is a mix of happiness and stress. The sessions are an opportunity to share experiences and to find ways of coping during what can be an emotionally difficult time, partly because of the perceived pressure to be a “perfect mum”.  For further information please click here.
