When we first started we did some regular, successful social coffee mornings — an opportunuity just to get together for a chat and a gossip (for mums and babies!) This then started the strong social element of the class, chatting and comparing many pregnancy stories and issues whilst keeping fit. Mums have made strong friendships in the class which have lasted many years.

Intergenerational mixing

We have also done classes at senior living in Westbourne. This class was a lovely community initiaitive – we ran the class upstairs in the activities room and then afterwards there was free tea/ coffee/ squash/ fruit available and a chance to chat to the residents. It really makes their day to meet and see the mums and babies.
