MAMS ON THE MOVE

Welcome to Mams on the Move!

Our 'Mams on the Move' classes and courses are specially designed for mams-to-be and new mams. We offer a range of great value ante natal and post natal 'Mams on the Move' sessions, led by specially qualified instructors which are FUN and sociable! Baby can come along to all sessions so no need for childcare either! We even include baby sing song in some of our sessions!

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.

Be sure to check out our video testimonials at the bottom of the page!
