Jayne’s knowledge, motivation and drive coupled with the ability to adapt the exercise program to your individual needs really helps when you are in the early stages of returning to or starting exercise following the birth of your baby.
Following the birth of my son, I ended up with severe weakness of my pelvic floor muscles. I also had diastasis recti and was told to do sit-ups by my midwife! After searching around, I was fortunate enough to find the contact details for Jayne Hume. Jayne personally called me to find out more about me, my postnatal health and how she could help. She told me all about the wonderful classes she runs where exercise is tailored to suit postnatal mums, allowing core muscles and pelvic floor to be strengthened without high impact exercises that will hinder recovery, such as sit-ups! I loved going to these classes. I could bring my son along too, perfect!
She also provided me with the contact details of Fiona Mitchell, a physiotherapist who specialises in pelvic health. Through the work of both of these wonderful ladies, I was able to become stronger, strengthen my pelvic and core muscles and recover. When I was stronger I began attending the advanced classes, targeted at women further along their postnatal journey but still the right kind of exercises.
Now I am pregnant with my second child and am attending the pregnancy classes enabling me to exercise safely, meet fellow mum’s and help prepare my body for giving birth. I thoroughly recommend getting in touch with Jayne and seeing what she has to offer you. She is so friendly and very knowledgeable!
I first met Jayne back in 2014 when I was pregnant with my first child. I attended Pregnancy classes in order to prepare me emotionally and physically for both the labour and caring for my first baby. I cannot emphasise how much Jayne’s class and overall knowledge of all things pregnancy related helped me along the way. As well as keeping fit and healthy in pregnancy she covered a wide range of areas for discussion towards the end of the class from the importance of pelvic exercise, breastfeeding techniques, pain relief in labour to packing your hospital bag. Nothing is too much trouble for Jayne, her humour and extensive knowledge really helped me through my pregnancy journey and beyond. I enjoyed the classes so much I returned to her classes postnatally. These classes are not only fitness classes, she’s gives advice and support on diet and nutrition and the importance of self care, which is a must after having a baby and something which often gets overlooked. I returned in 2017 in my second pregnancy as both classes helped me so much both in terms of preparation and meeting other mums in the same situation as myself.
I have attended classes and my experience has literally been life changing. The care and support you receive from Jayne is incredible. Not only are the classes tailored for post natal women, so you that you a regaining the strength that is often lost during pregnancy, but Jayne also educates you. You learn about your body and how eating the right food and doing to right type of exercise can really help your recovery after having a baby. I’ve also had a massage from Jayne and again she explained where my aches and pains were coming from and she gave me tips on simple exercises I could do to help. My only regret is that I didn’t join Birth fit.
I first met Jayne when I was pregnant with my second child. The classes have been a real lifeline for me- I’ve been able to learn about pregnancy and post natal fitness, all in a safe and relaxed environment. We have lots of fun while we exercise and I’ve met a network of supportive, like minded women who I know value the classes as much as I do. I’m definitely fitter and more knowledgeable about my own body since meeting Jayne.
I have known Jayne for almost 1.5 years now when I joined her pregnancy exercise class at 3/4 months pregnant. I then joined her post baby exercise class and have had massages from her pre and post baby. Her professional services, advice and support throughout a time that was challenging has been invaluable and she always goes that extra mile for her clients
I have been working with Jayne for a number years, starting with a pregnancy fitness class for my second baby and then continuing with post-natal classes after the birth. I am impressed with Jayne’s deep expertise and detailed understanding of issues facing women during and after pregnancy, choosing the best types of exercises for different stages and also taking into account very individual exercise needs. She is providing advice on nutrition and much more and is never afraid to answer uncomfortable questions. Even if Jayne is not able to find a solution herself, she will suggest someone from an extensive network of healthcare professionals to help, so you don’t feel left alone with an issue.
Jayne’s classes have been an excellent forum to meet other mums (to be), sharing experiences and ideas, ranging from babies teething to school admissions and anything in between. It is very comforting knowing that I am not alone facing life with children.
I met Jayne when I was 4 months pregnant and booked a home pregnancy massage. She put me at ease straight away, gave a great massage and explained lots of aches and pains I didn’t even realise I had. My daughter was breech throughout my pregnancy and showed no signs of budging – Jayne took the time to brief me on what to expect if I had to have a csection – which was lucky as I had emergency c sec 3 weeks early, but felt like I was a bit prepared. Post birth I also attended her postnatal exercise classes with my baby, which were fab for information, exercising safely and meeting other mums. As well as providing services (i still have the massages now!) Jayne is genuinely interested in supporting mums and this shines through – I feel very lucky to have met her. Forgot to mention you showing me how to look after my scar! Feel free to include if u want to x
I was lucky enough to find Jayne a few months postnatal. Jayne took the time to assess me and quickly referred me to a specialist physio, Fiona Mitchell. Since getting the ok to start exercising I have used Jayne for a variety of different services from; 1-2-1 sessions, (to build my confidence with exercising), detoxes, specialist holistic core restore, group classes, c-section massage and sports massage.
Through this Jayne has been positive, professional and motivated. She has taken a new broken mum to one that runs a 5k parkrun every week. I’m so grateful for everything she has done for me and the friendship we have built along the way.”
Joining Jaynes group was the best thing I ever did after having my second child I got really bad baby blues and my weight was out of control. Jayne helped me exercise the right way for my body and knew exactly what I needed to do to get me back on track from the right exercises to the right foods to eat as well her knowledge is endless and there is nothing she would not help you with.
Jayne provides extensive knowledge of food nutrition and her 3 monthly detox group is a great way to eat healthier and make good decisions about food and the way you feel. The other ladies in the group all knew how I was feeling too and I made friends. The classes Jayne runs are friendly energetic and fun.
