Look into any celebrity style magazine and you will find pages and pages featuring new celebrity Mums “getting back into shape”. Although the want for a pre-pregnancy body can be dangerously obsessive and executed using extreme measures in celeb-land, there is a sensible, healthy option for Perth and Kinross mums.
During the first few weeks of a new baby, you may feel sleep deprived and emotional. Bonding with your baby is a big part of being a new mum and heading to the gym or pool with your new arrival dropped off at the babysitters might not be the happiest option for you or baby. Well we have recently developed our range of Active Mums classes to get new mums fit and active.
Getting back into exercise may be the last thing on your mind, and we understand that you want to spend as much time with your baby as possible, so sending them to the babysitter while you exercise is not the ideal solution.
That is why we have exercise classes that include both you and baby, allowing you to exercise and socialise with other new mums whilst growing the bond with your baby. Or why not try one of our fitness classes for those days when you want some 'me' time.
All our classes encourage gradual weight loss and will help to provide mums with that much needed energy boost. Below is a list of suggested classes to start with:
Parent & Baby Swimming - The water based sessions are designed to introduce baby to the water whilst giving the mum the confidence and knowledge of holding the baby and moving them in the water so that they get the most benefit from the experience. Classes are available from babies from 3 months to 3 years. Children attending these classes must have completed all their immunisations prior to commencing these classes.
If you are new to exercise it is recommended that you speak to your doctor, health visitor or midwife before undertaking any new exercise.
