My baby is very unsettled, should I come?
I am very used to unsettled babies and am very happy to have them in the class; it can be stressful for Mum though. Both venues have side rooms you could escape too if you need a break from the class. I try to keep the class very flexible so that there are options to move around, sing a song, do some Baby Massage or Baby Yoga if I feel that will help a baby to enjoy the class.
What happens in the class?
We begin with a very short names and ages intro round and a chance to share your thoughts on a Mum challenge like: How are you supposed to get out of the house on time?!
Then we do some destressing, simple relaxation for Mums to release tight shoulders from all that feeding and cuddling and stop and take a breath.
We then move into our gentle core strengthening exercises and Yoga-based stretches.
weave in some brain boosting Baby Massage and Baby Yoga for the babies through the session and use bubbles, scarves, rattles and parachute play to keep them engaged. And we finish with the all important Mum-chat to make friends and know for sure you are not alone with the joys and challenges of new motherhood!
