Fit Mums - Exercise Class for Mums & Babies

Fit Mums - Exercise classes for Mums and Babies

Every Saturday @ 8am

Restore your Posture, Core and Pelvic Floor with specialised exercise classes. Babies are very welcome. Classes provide an opportunity to exercise with mothers who understand well what you are experiencing, in a supportive and positive atmosphere.

Growing, birthing and mothering your baby is a life changing experience and places demands on your body. Pregnancy and Mothering, carrying, lifting and bending all tend to change our posture over time and can lead to aches and pains.

What about your tummy muscles? Many mothers experience a separation of their abdominal muscles which leads to a “mummy tummy.” This is actually made worse by sit-ups, planks and traditional abdominal exercises. I will teach you how to safely
and effectively strengthen your core. Your pelvic floor muscles have come under a lot of strain during pregnancy and birth. I will show you how to strengthen these important muscles which can help prevent bladder and bowel issues as well as pelvic organ prolapse. High impact exercise such as running or jumping, stresses the pelvic floor muscles. These muscles are already weakened following pregnancy and birthing. My classes are specifically designed to strengthen your body from the inside out, with a special focus on pelvic floor and abdominals, to get you ready for a safe return to fitness activities. 

Classes led by Chartered Physiotherapist Louise O’Sullivan who, as well as 22 years of professional experience, is the mother of four young children. 

Please call Louise on 086 456 4291 for further information, or drop in before a class for a chat.

Classes are €8 pay as you go.

Louise is also available to see Women’s Health and Paediatrics clients privately.

Baby Massage Course

Baby Massage Course

5 week Baby Massage Course

Starts on Friday 2nd of November at 10am @ Community Well Studio, Donabate

Touch is one of the most significant and nurturing early experiences your baby will have. Research has shown that these early experiences can affect many aspects of our lives. Nurturing touch has long-term benefits and can impact how we think, feel, and relate to others, and most importantly, how we value and care for ourselves. Infant massage greatly enhances the early bonding relationship between parents and caregivers and their babies. By using gentle, tactile stimulation along with loving verbal communication, a wonderful bonding experience is shared. Strokes can be either stimulating or relaxing, depending on your baby’s needs and developmental level.

Infant Massage benefits your baby in the following specific ways:

*Relief for Colic & Wind
*Balances Emotions
*Aid Sleep Patterns
*Soothes Baby
*Builds Immunity
*Helps Gain Weight
*Aids The Bonding Process
*Assists recovery from Post-Natal Depression

The aim of this course, apart from giving you a wonderful lifetime skill, is also to create space to meet other parents and babies from your local community, exchange your experiences of being a parent first or another time round, give and receive advice and share the joys and challenges of parenthood:)

During five one hour sessions you will learn different massage techniques and receive course notes together with organic baby massage oil.

Course Fee: 100eur (most of health care providers refund the costs of the course in full or partially - please check your health insurance policy)
