Sling Fit is a safe, controlled and gentle way to get back into fitness after a baby. The sessions are designed with both mum and baby in mind. The sessions are very relaxed and informal and you are able to work to your own levels, resting or feeding baby whenever you need to.
I am a trained babywearing peer support worker so I am able to give you advice on making your sling comfortable and safe, not only during the class but also while babywearing out and about. I am a trained ante/postnatal fitness instructor so the sessions are perfect for getting back into fitness and meeting other new mums.
How soon can I start Sling Fit sessions after having a baby?
You must have had a postnatal check with your GP or midwife and got the all clear to exercise. I recommend twelve weeks recovery after a caesarean section before starting Sling Fit.
Is there an age limit on the baby?
The sessions are designed for pre walkers. All of the exercises are done with baby in a front carry.
Is there a restriction on the number of children that I bring along with me?
No, the more the merrier!
I haven’t done any exercise since before I got pregnant, will I be OK?
Yes, the sessions are designed to cater for all levels, from complete beginners to more experienced exercisers. You can rest at any point during the sessions.
