Fit For Delivery

Would you like an easier delivery and a quicker recovery back to your pre-baby body? This six-week course teaches expectant mothers specific flexibility and strengthening exercises designed to prepare your body for the demands of delivery and what to do after delivery to get your shape back more quickly. Classes also include discussion topics on nutrition, body mechanics before and after baby, preventing urinary incontinence and other post-partum issues.

This class is recommended for those that are at least three-months pregnant.

Exercising mothers may:

  • experience less physical discomfort
  • feel better psychologically than non-exercising mothers
  • shorten recovery time after delivery
  • improve body posture and decrease back pain
  • reduce pregnancy-related anxiety, stress and depression
  • experience better digestion and less constipation
  • enjoy increased energy levels
  • reduce "postpartum belly"
