Yes you are more than welcome to bring your baby along to Mother & Baby, Mamafit® ALL and Mamafit® GO.

Bringing your baby along is a great way to see that you can exercise alongside being a mum.

The babies can get involved in some exercises or rest in pushchairs, car seats or on the mats while mum is working up a sweat!

If you are bringing you your baby/child to Mamafit® GO they must remain in the pushchair/travel system at all times while moving. It is recommended that babies under 4 months old or who cannot hold their own head are in a travel system/pushchair with appropriate head support.

*Please note Mamafit® Pregnancy is for pregnant women only.

It is advisable to wait 6 weeks after birth, 10 weeks after a Caesarean, before recommencing structured exercise. It is always best to check with your healthcare provider during your postnatal check up to ensure you are ok to start exercising.

6 weeks may seem like a long time to some but it will take time to adjust to motherhood and your new baby. Remember it doesn't mean you have to sit still for 6 weeks; try to include physically activity in your daily routine such as walking to the shops or socialising with friends in the park. You can also start thinking about your posture and recommencing pelvic floor exercises.

You can attend Mamafit® Mother & Baby until your child is 1 year old.

Mamafit® ALL & Mamafit® GO are suitable for for ALL mums!

Yes we are a breastfeeding friendly organisation; you are welcome to feed your baby at any point during classes. All venues offer breakout areas if you prefer to breastfeed in private.

Don't panic, it happens all the time! Your baby will not be the first or last baby that cries, needs changing, feeding or your attention during a class. Your baby's welfare should always be a priority, feel free to stop at any point to attend to your baby, we will not take offence and all the other mums are use to crying babies!
