Online class to help new mums in Northumberland regain their strength and stability

Active Northumberland has started a new online exercise class to help new mums regain strength, stability and confidence in exercise.

Wednesday, 7th October 2020, 7:00 am

The mamas core stability class is part of the Mams on the Move initiative which aims to help support women to build low cost activity into their existing routine.

The class will be delivered by Zoom so new mums can take part from the convenience of their own home – with or without their baby!

It will run every Saturday until November 7 and be delivered by Rachel Rafiefar, antenatal educator and chair of the Guild of Pregnancy and Postnatal Exercise Teachers.

Online classes are being held for new mums in Northumberland.

Jemma Burt, Active Northumberland wellbeing coordinator, said: “Being a new mam can be daunting at the very best of times but the coronavirus pandemic has meant that many are feeling isolated as they have not been able to get out and about as much, during and after their pregnancy, or have the usual support network of friends and family to visit.

“This online class is delivered by a very experienced instructor and works on regaining core stability and strengthening pelvic floor muscles. It is suitable for all postnatal women especially if anyone has a diastasis recti – abdominal separation.

“If you are able to join us please do. We’ve a great community of friendly mams who are all in a similar situation and so they get great strength and support from each other.”

The course costs £20. To book and receive your zoom link, email Jemma Burt at: [email protected]
