The ante and postnatal period sees your body changing enormously and the exercise you do must take account of these changes.
We take antenatal and postnatal clients in most of our classes but Fit4Mums will offer classes specifically aimed at addressing the fitness needs of ante and postnatal women.
We often see mums with children of school age who still have muscle imbalances and pain which originated in the ante or postnatal period.

Antenatal exercise during pregnancy can:
  • Reduce back-pain and general discomfort
  • Prepare your body to enable you to have an easier delivery
  • Reduce the risk of postnatal depression
  • Enable you to recover faster from the birth
  • Reduce tiredness throughout your pregnancy
  • Help you to sleep better

Postnatal exercise can:
  • Teach you to keep good posture while feeding and carrying your baby
  • Correct the muscle imbalances which cause poor posture
  • Work to restore stretched abdominal muscles
  • Give specific exercises for the pelvic floor
  • Reduce back-pain
  • Reduce the risk of postnatal depression

If you would like to work on the areas listed below you will be welcome at Fit4Mums classes regardless of how old your children are.

The classes will focus on:
  • Reducing backpain
  • Abdominal work
  • Pelvic Floor Dysfunction work
  • Correction of muscular imbalances caused by pregnancy
