The Ashcombe Birthing Centre runs a SHINE project – promoting self-help, independence, nutrition and exercise.
The 10-week scheme is offered by Weston Area Health NHS Trust to pregnant women with a body mass index of more than 30.
Belinda Cox, a maternity service matron, said: “It’s such an honour to have been shortlisted for this award and to be recognised for the innovative project we are running.
“The results we are seeing from the project are fantastic, and the feedback from the women engaging with SHINE is hugely positive.
“I’m delighted we are being commissioned to run SHINE again over the next year.”
