Pregnancy Information for Nutrition and Exercise (PINE)

PINE helps you maintain a healthy lifestyle during your pregnancy – ​and explains your growing baby’s nutritional needs.​

PINE informs you how to eat healthily and keep active during pregnancy.

PINE also exposes common myths about eating and exercise during pregnancy.

COVID-19 update: in light of government recommendations, we have suspended PINE workshops. If you would like more information please contact Deborah Ricketts, Health Improvement Facilitator, on 07342076322. Or email deborah.ricketts@gstt.nhs.uk.

How does PINE work?

PINE takes place in your local hospital or children’s centre. It is offered to all pregnant women living in Lambeth with a healthy body weight. 

The workshop will last two hours and be held at different times, including weekdays, evenings and weekends. 

Please feel free to bring your birth partner/companion/friend with you to the workshop (just let the organisers know in advance). Children are also welcome, but they will be under your care and supervision throughout the session. A crèche is not provided.

  • Why does eating well in pregnancy matter?
