The Mother & Baby Program is an 8-week exercise and education class conducted by a Physiotherapist with a special interest in women’s health.

These tailor-made exercise classes are run for women who have recently had a baby with the goal of assisting women to return safely to exercise after having a baby.

Each session includes 60 minutes of exercise conducted by a physiotherapist and a 30-minute educational component delivered by various health professionals.

Babies attend the program with their mums but unfortunately, older children are not permitted.
