Top tips for change

Pregnancy is a time of change when you’re likely to be changing some old habits and learning new ones.

Sometimes we just make a decision, and then make a change; while at other times, it isn’t quite that easy – so maybe it’s worth thinking of things that can help us change.

Feedback tells us that the following ideas have been useful when making changes:

  • Be realistic
  • Prioritise what I want to do
  • Find support when I need it
  • Start with something easy
  • Small achievable steps
  • Spot the changes – even small ones
  • Remember new habits take time
  • Involve a friend or partner
  • Take time to think of healthier alternatives
