A HOLISTIC CENTRE FOR BIRTH, SWIMMING, FITNESS AND THERAPY FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN.

Established in 2007, Inspire Mum & Baby is a holistic centre offering a wide range of services for women as they advance through life, from prenatal to motherhood. We have walked alongside thousands of mothers through their pregnancy and childbirth journey, supported them as they took their first steps into parenthood and cared for them during their postnatal recovery period. With our established swimming programme, we have also nurtured many children from as young as infants into competent swimmers, and assisted many women in their fitness regime with our fitness classes.  

Inspire Mum & Baby also houses Singapore’s first WATSU® practitioner, and is one of the few pioneers in Singapore for infant swimming from as young as 2 months old. 

INSTRUCTORS

Coming from diverse backgrounds but united in their love for water and teaching, our highly qualified instructors adopt a child-led, learning-through-play philosophy in their swim classes and tailors class program to each individual.
