HAPPY groups promote healthy family lifestyles and are for pregnant women who have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 25.

The groups are open to pregnant women of all ages who live in the Better Start Bradford area. It is completely free to attend.

You can join a group when you are anywhere between 22-32 weeks’ pregnant. You can speak to your midwife to find out how to join a group, or contact a perinatal co-ordinator (see contact details below).

What happens in a HAPPY group?
HAPPY groups are a safe and fun place to meet other pregnant women in your area who are at a similar stage of pregnancy to yourself. You can also bring along a family member or friend to offer support.

Groups run for 2.5 hours a week for 6 weeks while you are pregnant. There are another 6 sessions after your baby is born and you can bring your baby along with you. Dates of the 6 antenatal sessions are:
