Returning to exercise after having a baby can be daunting. With all the new responsibilities if it's your first born, or the extra responsibility of a new infant alongside your other children, it can be hard to make the move back into exercising.
It's not just about losing the baby weight and getting back into your favourite pair of jeans or little black dress, but also about being healthy and rebuilding those core muscles.
However, joining a gym can cost membership fees, so you have to find one with a creche or rely on family members to babysit."That's all too hard, I'll just take up walking" some may say, but then the weather becomes too cold or hot and that plan goes astray.
Why not exercise with your baby? You can safely return to exercise after birth while incorporating your baby into your workout and learn play skills to help your baby achieve their motor milestones.
These classes are run by a physiotherapist and are suitable for you and your baby up to 6 months old. Older children may be welcome in some classes, but must be supervised.
Classes run for around 45 minutes and focus on pelvic floor and abdominal muscle rehabilitation.
