How do I join MummaBFit?
We are currently in the process of updating our website to include a fancy “Book now” button! You will see details of our current term on our timetable page along with details of all future terms! We run in line with school term and each term varies between 5-7 weeks. Booking is essential and spaces do fill up quickly. We give priority booking to those already on the course to secure their preferred time and location on the next course.
Until our page is up and running to book on please contact us directly on the email link or via our facebook page and we will do the rest!
How long after having my baby can I do exercise?
A lot depends on how the birth was but we will not allow anyone to exercise until 6-8 weeks after a vaginal delivery, assuming you’ve had the all-clear from your doctor or health visitor. If you’ve had a c-section then it’s best to wait around 8 weeks post delivery to allow your body a little extra time to heal, again assuming you’ve had sign-off from your doctor to exercise . Drop us a line if you have any questions though and we’ll be happy to talk through your situation.
How long is each class?
The full session is an hour long. The exercise part usually lasts around 30 minutes including warm up and cool down. Please arrive promptly as we do try to start on time as this allows us lots of time at the end to chill out, relax, drink tea and eat biscuits.
Can I bring extra children and siblings
Of course!!! We know that some mums have extra children that are not at school yet so we try out best to accommodate them, some even join in. If we run in school holidays or inset days extra children are welcome. We are not responsible for your babies and children; we are here to look after you. All we ask is you take responsibility for your own children and keep an eye on them at all times.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept bank transfer, paypal or cash in advance. All balances MUST be settled prior to the term starting.
What if my baby cries or needs a feed?
Then you do what you have to do!!. You will not be judged in our classes, ever, we’re all mums so if you need to stop and look after your baby then you go, do what you have to do and rejoin the class when you’re ready, its your time.
What should I wear/bring?
Firstly for your comfort you need to make sure that you have a well fitted, supportive bra that accommodates your changing size and shape. Apart from that its pretty much up to you, general gym wear is always good as are loose fitting sweat tops and tracksuit bottoms. Its all about being comfortable. Take a look at the pictures around the website, you’ll see what the other mums wore when they popped along. Make sure you have a bottle of water and your baby changing bag with your usual baby paraphernalia and we’ll provide the rest. If there is anything in particular you think your child may like then of course please bring it.
I see you take photos of both mums and babies, I am not comfortable with this.
Not a problem at all. let us know and we wont! We respect your privacy but PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU TELL US!
I understand I have to fill out a PARQ health questionnaire when I sign up. What is this and what happens to it?
We need a PARQ filled in so we as your instructors know about your health, your pregnancy, labour and any on going health issues relating to the aforementioned. It is essential so we do not cause you any further harm or aggravate any issues. We also need your next of kin details if, heaven forbid, anything happens to you. Each instructor keeps your notes on them at all times for referencing or if as mentioned we have to contact anyone. Once you finish a term and choose to leave Mummas, all notes are handed over to chief tea drinker Vicky. These are safely secured and locked away. We keep them for 12 months before destroying them. This is to protect us, as much as it is you. We will NEVER EVER pass your details onto a third party, unless requested by you, and we will NEVER EVER disclose your details to anyone else. We are fully registered and affiliated with the Data Protection Act. More information can be found at http://www.legislation.gov.uk
What if I can not make a class?
We offer the chance o make up your space at another class at any time within that current term!
We do not offer a monetary refund or discount your next term to account for missed classes. Alternatively you could gift your space to a friend? Share the Mummas love! Just get in contact with your instructor and let them know!
I’m a bit nervous
There’s nothing wrong with that, for some this a big thing and we recognise that. It may sound silly but we get nervous meeting you all for the first time too. But we’ll do all we can to help you get comfortable and support you. We’re all mums we’ve all been where you are now and we’re sure that as well as the exercise you’ll benefit from the advice, support and time of the others you’ll meet in class. We have witnessed mums form friendship and we too as the instructors form friendships. It is not uncommon for us instructors to meet up with some of our mums out of Mummas and much on more tea and cake!
Doesn’t eating biscuits after workout make it a bit pointless?
Absolutely not! it is all about moderation. We are not here to turn you into Victoria Secret Models (as much as we’d love to be) we are here to help you get out the house, return to exercise safely, feel good about yourself and socialise. top tip, just take one biscuits, not 2 – that’ll help 😉
