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 ante natal and post natal 'Mams on the Move' classes which are specially designed for mams-to-be as well as new mams and are supervised, FUN and very sociable!

See below for class timetable, prices and more information about our Mams on the Move classes.

WE WILL BE RUNNING A LIMITED TIMETABLE OF ONLINE MAMS ON THE MOVE CLASSES FROM W/C 4TH JANUARY. PLEASE SEE THE TIMETABLE BELOW FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.
