Mom & Baby Gym

It IS possible to coordinate many moms and babies for postpartum group classes, but it’s not easy!  In fact, what we’ve noticed is that it adds a significant layer of stress to what should be a relaxing, joyful experience!

In addition to our own observations, we’ve been listening to what you want and need.  We are so excited to launch Mom & Baby Gym in response!  Mom & Baby Gym is an innovative, flexible way to meet your fitness needs postpartum!

With intentionally designed curriculum and oversight from a perinatal fitness professional, you will feel safe and supported as you return to fitness!

Not to mention, flexible scheduling and no childcare required for the little ones!  You’ve always got the option to pop in solo to utilize the Bodies for Birth Space during designated Mom & Baby Gym hours too.  Do what works best for you!
