This class is for mums who have completed at least one 6 week term of Mum & Baby Chapter 1. When mum feels up to moving to the next level, Chapter 2 is there to give a more intensive workout, while always keeping an eye out for any signs that the body may not be ready just yet. Exercises are progressed in a safe and supervised way to ensure correct technique and form.
Babies are always welcome to help mum out!

Thats up to mum or baby. Some babies like to stay in their car seats, some like to sprawl out on a mat and either stare up at mum or have a snooze. Some like to sit up and have a nose around. Feel free to bring any toys, blankets, baby seats etc with you if you like.
Please note the gym studio is Ferrycarrig is not buggy friendly as there is a stairs up to the room but no lift.
All babies cry! They also scream, puke and poop. Basically they are unpredictable and they call the shots. We are all mums in the room an nobody is going to mind, in fact you can be guaranteed a few helping hands. Steph is always willing to hold a baby if it means they will be happy and allow mum to continue her workout.
