Pre & Post Natal Exercise Classes

Guelph CHC recently decided to end its long-running Pre and Postnatal Exercise Program (PPNX).  Our decision results from an extensive review process  that showed this program is not reaching our priority populations.  Over the next few months, we will work on ways to redirect the resources devoted to this program.  Our focus will be addressing chronic health issues, increasing community capacity for health, and better meeting the needs of Guelph residents and designated neighbourhoods that face a combination of the following barriers:

  • Unstable housing
  • Low income
  • Recent immigrants with language barriers
  • Moderate to sever mental health challenges
  • Moderate to sever disabilities
  • Addictions
  • At risk, socially excluded
  • Without access to primary care

We greatly appreciate the community’s support for and participation in this program over the years. We will keep you informed of new programs as they are established, via this website and other forms of communication and promotion.
