Mummy Walk & Talk

A new initiative from the people behind Buggy Runners, the fitness session where your baby comes too. Welcome to a new friendship group for Mums to be and mothers looking for fresh air, exercise, company, advise, help and support. We are a free park-based social group for new mums

Mummy Walk and Talk is a walk in the park for those who are pregnant, who have recently had a baby or for women with children and would like to meet other mums. The walking group is free. It’s a new initiative from Greenwich Fitness & Pilates (www.greenwichpilates.co.uk) , the organisation behind Buggy Runners in Greenwich Park.

Mummy Walk & Talk is the perfect way to enjoy some gentle exercise while out with your baby. The walks are led by qualified running coach, personal trainer and mother Ronnie Haydon, Mental Health First Aid qualified and who also volunteers as a Mental Health Ambassador for Kent AC and Greenwich Runners.

Exercising outdoors in beautiful green spaces has been proven to help with wellbeing, both mental and physical. New mothers are reminded of this often. But it’s not always easy to motivate yourself to get out there. As many women report, sometimes just getting out of your pyjamas is a major effort.
We believe that if you have a social group to attend with your baby, you’re more likely to take those important steps out of the house and into the world. If the social group is outdoors, and involves gentle but regular exercise, your mood improves dramatically.

Mummy Walk & Talk is the brainchild of Ellie Brown, CEO of Greenwich Fitness & Pilates, who has experienced post natal depression in the past and wants to reach out to other women in her community. She sees the walking group as a crucial first step toward ‘getting your body back’ after having a baby and a brilliant way to make new friends.

The walks will last just 45 minutes and there’ll be plenty of opportunity to rest if mums feel too tired, as well as a chance to visit the café with new friends and continue the conversation.
