Aqua Mumma's is an exclusive aqua aerobic program for pre natal and mums and bubs up to 3 years of age. Our qualified, enthusiastic instructors are sure to make your work out fun and enjoyable whilst incorporating specific exercises for pregnant and post birth bodies.
Aqua Mummas pre-natal classes are specifically designed to promote a strong, healthy body where your baby can develop and to prepare you for birth. Exercise during pregnancy is recommended by many doctors, unless Mum has underlying health issues that may prevent her from participation.
“Current evidence shows it is not only safe but also beneficial to continue physical activity during pregnancy” (source: NSW Sport and Recreation Active Community Guide: “mum’s the word”)
Remember to always discuss your fitness program with your obstetrician to make sure there are no complications.
Being physically active and fit during pregnancy may lead to an easier labor, faster recovery and quicker route to losing post baby weight.
Exercising in water helps ease pressure and offers support to weight bearing joints allowing you to exercise in greater comfort than on land.
Our unique classes are delivered by enthusiastic, qualified instructors.
Aqua Mummas is an asset to pregnant women – so come along and join the fun
(babies from 6 weeks and up to 3yrs of age)
These classes will help you through the stages of recovery after birth and beyond. It is a great opportunity to exercise with other women who are going through a similar stage in life.
Aquatots @ Forde is the only complex in Canberra to offer “baby boats”. Baby boats are floatation devises that attach to you while you work out in the water. The boats conveniently allow you to bring your baby to class with you.
Aqua Mummas mum and bub classes have huge potential to become a mother care group with a difference. Imagine exercising with your baby and then spending time relaxing with other mums in the coffee shop attached to the pool complex!
