Muscle Mums – Mums and Bubs exercise classes (Northbridge)

Muscle Mums exercise classes have been developed following increasing demands from mothers who want to get back to their pre-pregnancy shape and need help with early safe exercising after the birth.

Each class involves approximately one hour of post-natal specific exercises with your baby and interactive learning topics such as:

Strengthening deep abdominal and back muscles
Improving and restoring pelvic floor muscles
Adopting correct lifting and handling techniques

Small classes (a maximum of six mums with their babies) allow time for the physiotherapist to work one on one with each mum.
