Postnatal exercise classes

Hi all,
Giving birth next week and I'm already looking into getting back in shape with my little one. Anyone know of any postnatal classes in the area? Or maybe start a stroller walking club in humboldt park?
I'm a new mom and would love to meet other moms in the area!

Thanks!
Jen

  • dajenster smile :)

    I'm available at 8am any day right now. My 3 month old wakes up at 7am, it's better than sitting watching tv! I'm down to go walking.

  • Bethany Persons Christian, wife and new mom

    I figure if we get going daily, there's a group to walk every day, even if some can only make it some days. There are lots of other good ideas in this post, but I like walking because it's free, I can include my baby, I can talk to while I walk, I don't need special equipment, and it's good, low-impact exercise.

Northwest Tower Project, Parking Confusion Makes Milwaukee Unsafe, Some Say

"It's very unsafe" when people now try to park on the narrowed street, said Sarah Merryman, manager of Trim, a waxing boutique at 1629 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Trim is located across the street from Wicker Park's Northwest Tower, where a half-block long concrete walkway was erected last month as part of a construction project to build a boutique hotel at the Milwaukee, Damen and North avenues intersection.

Small business owners along the 1600 block of North Milwaukee Avenue said they are being negatively impacted by the unsafe parking conditions.

Ann Nolan, who operates a State Farm insurance agency at 1631 N. Milwaukee Ave., said that she had just paid to renew a loading zone in front of her business, which cars now cannot use without blocking the traffic lane.

    If you can grab her, get her scanned for a microchip. Paws does not take in cats or dogs, they go through animal care and control etc. The other person who posted that she was on their porch said she meowed and showed her belly which makes me think she may not be spayed, is in heat and is probably a stray. You might consider calling Treehouse and seeing what they can recommend doing. If you are willing to take on the responsibility of getting her spayed (feral cats will be spayed for free but you will have to catch her, bring her over there and pick her up) that would be awesome as chances are she will get pregnant very soon if she is a stray. You can do a catch and release so you wont have to find a home for her if that is something you cant do. Just getting her spayed would be huge.
