Post-natal exercise classes

An initiative of Westmead Private Hospital, these classes are designed to make exercise as accessible as possible for new mums. Post-natal exercise classes is a series of mat-based exercises aimed primarily at improving core strength following childbirth, The exercises incorporate:

  • cardiovascular conditioning
  • weight bearing exercise to focus on improving bone mineral density
  • stretches, and
