Below is my best attempt at a comprehensive list of exercise classes being offered locally for pregnant and postpartum moms. If you know of something I missed, let me know in the comments or drop me a line at email@example.com, and I'll get it on here ASAP!
But first, a Big Disclaimer: It is always a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before starting any exercise program, and this is particularly true when you are pregnant or newly postpartum. And now I'm talking to you just-gave-birth-the-other-day mamas: SLOW DOWN. I know you have great reasons for wanting to get back to working out, but YOU CAN CAUSE MORE HARM THAN GOOD by doing the wrong kind of exercises too soon. (Sorry to YELL, but it is only because I care.) Check out the infographics below from MuTu System, read their blog for more details, and talk with your healthcare provider about your specific needs before you get started exercising again. Trust me on this one.
And if you think you might benefit from physical therapy, ask your midwife or doctor for a recommendation..
