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.
