We’ll also include stretches and movement specifically for baby with the option of including them in some poses throughout the class to keep them involved and engaged. Class is appropriate for moms who are six weeks postpartum who have been given medical clearance for activity. Most moms feel like it works best for babies who are not actively mobile.
