Movement and Relaxation for new Mums & Mums to be
The more active and fit you are during pregnancy, the easier it will be for you to adapt to your changing shape and weight gain. It will also help you to cope with labour. The re:fresh team is dedicated to helping you keep moving safely from bump, through birth and beyond.
From Aqua Natal to Pregnancy Pilates and Mindful Movement we have lots of classes that are suitable at any stage of your pregnancy.
We can also help you be active after baby has arrived with classes such as Buggy Buddies and Wheely Fit. You don’t need to worry about childcare as baby can come along in their pram. We also have a Mindful Movement class for Mums and Babies, a stretching and relaxation class for new mums. This class is suitable until baby is on the move as they can lay on the mat and mum can interact with them throughout the class.
All our ante and post natal classes are £2 or if you qualify for the re:fresh discount then they are just £1. To qualify you must live, work or have a GP in Blackburn with Darwen.
Once baby’s are old enough we have classes to get them moving, practising balance and co-ordination. Mini Movers is suitable for pre-schoolers who are steady on their feet and Biker Tots is for children aged 2 -4 years. These sessions are just 50p per child. All children will need to have a leisure card to access these sessions which can be obtain from Blackburn Sports and Leisure Centre, Darwen Leisure Centre or Witton Park Arena.
Please note: participants must wait until after their 6-8 week check after normal delivery and 12 weeks after a c-section before taking part in any post natal activities.
