Postnatal Classes

The Active Birth Centre is here to support you and your baby from the beginning of pregnancy until the first steps are taken – and many women return for their second, third or fourth pregnancy. Postnatal support ensures you have a trusted and comfortable space where you can receive advice and support, meet with friends, and take time with your baby – or just for you

In 2014 Lynn’s baby & me yoga classes were voted among the best in a prestigious national competition, run by Britain’s biggest parenting site Netmums. She received one of the top awards in the Classes for You in Islington.  The UK-wide competition was launched as a chance for people running adult classes to be recognised for their hard work serving and improving the local community. Lynn coined this phase baby & me many years ago when she wanted to reflect that her postnatal yoga classes were for you and your baby not a class for yoga despite your baby!

Lynn’s wonderfully supportive “new baby & me” course is a great way to begin our postnatal program after which you can move into the baby massage or postnatal yoga classes, she has a wealth of experience to support your early parenting. These sessions will help you grow in confidence as you develop skills which you will go on to use in your daily life as a mother.

Lynn also offers private postnatal sessions in your own home or at the active birth centre, tailored to you and your baby’s specific needs – email her to discuss

For more support at this time we also have  –  Mothers Talking group, as well as our wonderful therapy clinic, were our therapists are experienced in giving you and your baby ongoing support at this time.

I can’t tell you how good the class was yesterday for my body and spirit. It was such a gift to be in a calm, nurturing space and to have some time to focus on me. Edie clearly loved it too as she was relaxed and happy the whole time. Thanks so much for what you offered us yesterday. Im already looking forward to next week. ” Stefanie & Edie

We have both really enjoyed all your classes that we have attended and really appreciated your support as well – coming to one of your classes always uplifted me and put any worries about caring for a small baby in perspective . You have been fantastic and made a real difference to us particularly in those early days.
A HUGE THANK YOU. – Nicky & Laila
