Slimming World


Slimming World

The weight management organisation, with more than 10,000 UK groups meeting weekly, will be working in partnership with the RCM to raise awareness in supporting pregnant women and breastfeeding mums in managing their weight.

 

Slimming World is the only national weight management organisation that supports pregnant and breastfeeding women and, with the consent and ongoing recommendation of their midwife or GP, actively works with women to address weight issues.

.

“We don’t encourage weight loss or ‘dieting’ during pregnancy – instead we support women to adopt a balanced, healthy diet to prevent excess weight gain; we also help mums to manage their weight healthily following the birth of their child, while breast-feeding,” said Caryl Richards, Slimming World’s managing director “Joining the RCM Alliance is a tremendous opportunity to ensure pregnant women get the right information and advice, during and after pregnancy and that midwives continue to be supported in the outstanding work they do.”

 

The RCM Alliance enables the RCM to work with carefully selected companies to support midwifery and promote the interests of the RCM, midwives and mothers.
