Exercise during and after pregnancy



It's important to stay fit and healthy during and after your pregnancy but you need to find the right exercise for you. Below are a few examples of local exercise groups. You might find it easier to exercise in a group rather than at home as being with other people can help to motivate you and you can have a laugh with the other mums/mums-to-be along the way.

Sling Swing
- weekly classes in Lancaster and Carnforth
Sling Swing is a fun and funky dancing and gentle movement classes for mums and dads with their little ones in slings and baby carriers. It is also suitable as prenatal exercise, so no need to wait until baby arrives.
Benefits for parent: spend quality time bonding with our baby; build intimacy and trust with your baby; have fun; improves your mood and increases energy levels; improves your posture and self-awareness; helps you feel confident.
Benefits for baby/infant: builds intimacy and trust with parent; introduces music, movement and dance; defelops musical appreciation and a good sense of rhythm; stimulates your baby's mind; your baby will love watching the others around them.
Don't be put off if you've never used a sling before - I bring slings for you to borrow in class and can fit one to you and your baby safely and comfortably.  All moves are suitable pre- and post-natally.  Babies must be at least 6 weeks old (or 12 weeks if you had a c-section). 2 left feet are welcome - come and join the fun.

If you're joining a gym then be sure to tell them at your induction that you've recently had a baby and they should tailor your workout accordingly.

Don't fancy a class or being a gym bunny? Then just taking your baby for regular walks will provide you with plenty of exercise (not to mention fresh air!)
