If you are pregnant or you have just had a baby, you will understand the challenges of getting through the day without having at least one emotional breakdown. There are so many highs and lows when you have just had a baby and we would really like to support as many women as we can, when they are having the unpredictable lows.

Exercise is proven to help boost mood and energy, but often Mums can not afford it and do not feel they are worth the money. With your help, we can give Mums access to tailored exercise sessions, social inclusion and mentoring to help improve their physical and mental health.

After you have had a baby, the sheer exhaustion can lead often lead to new Mums isolating themselves and feeling low in mood, which can result in various mental health conditions. We would like pregnant women, Mums and their babies to come along to our sessions, for a chat, gentle exercise and refreshments and who cares what you look like. If you have managed to leave the house without a shower and sick on each shoulder, then you are doing just fine!

Mums are like the centre of our universe, they keep everything moving. From raising our next generation, to nurturing and providing a loving home, there is no role more important. The problem is that Mums can sometimes not get the recognition they truly deserve. When you see someone juggling lots of balls at a circus, you applaud them, but sadly not the case for all Mums. When Mums are busy juggling everything life throws at them they can feel pretty alone. Lets do our bit for Mums, as a happy Mum is a happy home.

Join our free event on Monday 11th September, @ 11:30 at Tothill, Plymouth, for some fun games to make you laugh and feel good.

“I’ve been coming to the postnatal classes for several weeks and absolutely love it. Not only is it helping me with my fitness it’s helping mentally as I’m interacting with other mums, it’s a class we can go to and feel relaxed as we can bring our babies and if they aren’t being angels no one cares! While I was pregnant I had very bad spd at 28 weeks which resulted in being house bound for a month and there after only walking small distances. I found even months after birth my legs would ache and I couldn’t carry my 3yr old daughter as it was to much weight straining on my lower body. I use the exercises Danielle provides at home and I’m feeling stronger already, being able to take the children up to bed I’d a little thing but means so much. Danielle herself Is a lovely coach, full of energy and so supportive with everyone and their current abilities. The classes are really fun and we all laugh, I didn’t think i’d ever be playing dodge ball or hula hooping again! It’s a great class where we can all relax and feel comfortable, but also helping our bodies with postnatal exercises. “

“The baby fitness classes have helped to regain my confidence, strength and socialise with other mums in the same boat. When I first started attended the baby classes I wasn’t sure what to expect, however I was really surprised how good they were. I had just had a baby, I had no childcare but wanted to exercise to feel good again. I also felt a bit intimidated about big classes and having extra baby weight how I might look next to other women. During this time I spent lots of my time alone with my baby and craved adult conversation. The classes meant that I could take my baby (not needing childcare) and socialise with people in a similar circumstance. The area set up for the babies each class is great and it explores all senses and Eden loves playing alongside other babies and with all the different toys. The exercises are great and work all different parts of the body concentrating on post pregnancy so not too overwhelming or hard to take in but enough to work up a sweat, release endorphins and feel like you have had a good workout. The fact that it is free is amazing as with a new baby it is so costly I had difficulty finding something cheap enough but this is good for me and Eden and no cost. I would definitely recommend these classes to my friends and I would definitely recommend Danielle who not only knows what she’s teaching but helps with the babies too where support is needed in class.”
