MAMS ON THE MOVE

A gentle push in the right direction!

In November 2018, Active Northumberland was awarded a Sport England grant to help new mams get active.

As a new mam, you might be unclear about the type and amount of exercise that is appropriate during and after pregnancy, or about the benefits that exercise can bring. Here at Active Northumberland we are keen to help support and encourage new mams to take part in exercise.

We offer a range of low cost 'Mams on the Move' classes which are specially designed for new mams and are supervised, FUN and very sociable!
MAMS ON THE MOVE

Mamas Core Stability

After you've had your little one it's important to ease back into exercise and seek professional advice.

This class runs over 6 weeks and works on regaining core stability and strengthening your pelvic floor muscles.

We slowly introduce the basics within this class and tailor the exercises to your individual needs. Suitable for anyone with diastasis recti.

Buggy Walks

Ease back into fitness with our Buggy Walks for postnatal mams and their babies.

Walks are led by walk leaders and give women the opportunity to meet other mams in a relaxed environment.

Walks are FREE and some are followed by refreshments (cost £3) where you can socialise with other mams. Booking not required.
