Fit Mummies

 

Specifically designed safe low impact exercise class for new mums who want to return to fitness following pregnancy and birth. Paying particular attention to key areas such as back, abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. Babies can join in too! As Born to Carry Peer Supporters we encourage and support the use of slings so that your baby can snuggle up close to you whilst you exercise (slings provided) Babies are also welcome in a pram, car seat or on a small play area.

Did you know that being active following birth has so many health benefits for you and your baby, and it is also fantastic fun!
