Hi - my name is Louise White, mother of two, fitness instructor and founder of MamaActive ! Health and fitness have always been a huge part of my life from a very young age; it started with competitive swimming and running. In my thirties I began competing in Martial Arts, this is when I met my partner and now have 2 beautiful girls. Exercise keeps me grounded, helps alleviate the stresses life throws at you and generally makes me feel happier and more positive. Nowadays it also gives me some much needed alone time!
Just after becoming a fully qualified gym instructor, I found out I was pregnant with my first daughter. I went on to have a very fast uncomplicated labour and, I believe this was due to my exercise routine throughout my pregnancy. I worked through each trimester preparing physically, building my endurance and strength, preparing my body and mind and for childbirth. I felt strong and in control and after childbirth, with a fantastic uncomplicated recovery!
It wasn't until my second I realised how little support and education there was for mums. Mums that are looking to get active again and feel better about themselves or may have restrictions like pelvic floor and core weakness. This is why I decided to embark in getting the best training and become an educator myself supporting mums on their 4th trimester journey. I have created a package to educate, empower and help heal within a exercise and movement programme.
MamaActive is designed to support mums throughout pregnancy and beyond SAFELY. If you have any questions please check out the F.A.Q tab or send me an email or give me a call and discuss your journey to birth or recovery.
MamaActive is now based in Lowestoft (originally Glasgow) educates mothers on their physical and emotional journeys through pregnancy and after baby.. While enabling optimal healing through exercise and movement.
"I have worked with over 100 mums within classes and on a 1-2-1 basis and it is fantastic to see them flourish and grow in confidence on their journey with me".
- Louise White, MamaActive Founder.
