celebrate and reward your
post-pregnancy body

We understand that adjusting to life with a new baby can be difficult and you might be thinking about how to “lose the baby weight”, but we don’t like to think in this way. You’re still in the same body, but it’s been through some pretty big changes and you need to respect that.

Your body brought new life into the world and is beautiful. To celebrate, let’s take care of YOU because you ARE your body. You don’t need intense exercise right now. What you need is good nutrition, gentle exercise for blood flow and restoring core function, rest, healing, and most importantly – care.

rebuild at the correct pace, from the inside out

Jumping straight into high-intensity exercise can lead to injury. Your gynaecologist has told you that you can go back to your pre-pregnancy activities at your 6-8 week check-up and Early Days Mum classes are designed for new mums (or any mums), so you can heal from the inside out.

In this foundational, healing class expert trainers will guide you through the necessary steps to aid your recovery. You may have a pelvic floor injury, diastasis recti, or simply postural pain. Whatever the case may be, you will be given the education/tools to help yourself.
