UPDATE: The Walk and Talk funded session have now ended but parents are continuing to meet at Potternewton Park on Wednesdays at 1.30 for a walk around the park. Meet at the formal gardens inbetween the skateboard park, the bowling club and the old mansion.
Free Pre and Post Natal Walk and Talk designed for pregnant women and new mothers with their babies.
Wednesdays at 1.30 meet at the Formal Gardens (in front of the old mansion)
The sessions are appropriate after the first scan around 12 weeks gestation, and following birth around 6 weeks after normal birth. 8 weeks following caesarean.
Babies can attend in buggies or in baby slings (can be provided). Lots of support is given if babies are unsettled or need changing so don’t worry about that.
Suitable loose clothing and protective trainer-type footwear is recommended. Babies should wear layered clothing taking into consideration the weather.
The session will include a short warm up followed by a light aerobic section walking, some muscular strengthening in a group formation so there’s more time for chatting, finishing with a cool down, stretching and relaxation. There’s plenty of time built into the session to chat, ask questions and share information.
Exercises and advice built around topics relevant to mums to be and new mums, such as lifting, pushing prams, back care, posture, relaxation techniques. It is designed to be friendly and good fun. Sessions delivered by 2 Midwives with all the appropriate training.
NB Walk and Talk at Potternewton Park is not a NativityHub event. For further information please contact the organisers directly.
