The class is appropriate from six weeks postnatal and babies (pre crawling) are welcome. Jenna recognises the difficulty of week after week getting childcare or being away from your baby so she has designed the class that babies can attend so that you can get that 'me time' which every new mum is lacking. This class is designed for you so bring along anything to keep little one entertained, such as blankets and toys!

If you have any of the above issues, it would be recommended to have a one to on Mummy MOT assessment prior to attending the course so that she can tailor a programme specifically to your needs.
