Lots of Atlanta moms have enjoyed their Oh Baby! Fitness experience. Women have worked out, made friends and bonded with their babies in an environment that's fun and supportive.
I've so enjoyed my experience with Oh Baby and really think the classes helped keep me comfortable through pregnancy and during delivery (4 pushes and he was out!) The instructors are motivating and do a fantastic job of keeping everyone engaged. They're also a wonderful resource for all things pregnancy. I recommend you guys to all my pregnant friends!
I have enjoyed all the classes I have taken through Oh Baby - both pregnant and with my baby. I recommend you to all my friends. I was a happier, healthier mommy because of you.
Everyone was amazed at how strong my endurance (during delivery) was-- doctors, nurses, family, etc. Even recovery, I was up walking around just 30 minutes after delivery.
I firmly believe it was because my muscles were ready. Even now, two weeks later, I'm already at my prepregnancy weight. Staying fit makes a huge difference.
I've recommended your classes to multiple friends. Truly made my entire pregnant experience better.
I just wanted to let you know how much I have loved my Oh Baby experience! I had the most wonderful time taking the combo and water aerobics classes throughout my pregnancy from Lauren and Elizabeth. The best part is I met wonderful friends. We all recently got together for our first playdate last week; it was truly great to have had their support pre and post baby. We are taking the stroller class together that starts this Friday.
Thanks so much for all you do; Oh Baby is a great avenue for pregnant women and moms.
Attached is a photo of all the Oh Baby babies from our play date.

I really have enjoyed the Prenatal Toning, Fitness and Yoga combo class--it was one of the best things I have done during my pregnancy. It was great physically as well as emotionally to connect to other people who were going through what I was. I found it invaluable. Thank You!
My weekly Prenatal toning sessions with Erika Barnett no doubt gave me the stamina to survive several hours of pushing without having to have a C-section.
Thank you, Erika and Oh Baby! Fitness!!
The great news is that my labor was crazy easy, and I am sure that having worked out with Oh Baby! Fitness and Erica over the last 5.5 months in the prenatal combo class at Dekalb Medical was a major factor in my ability to push even when numb and have a smooth delivery. I looked forward to Erika pushing us to really prepare our bodies for motherhood and appreciated the aches that came the next day to tell me I really had a great work out. Please pass on my gratitude to her. Looking forward to Mom and Baby classes.
I have absolutely loved Oh Baby! Fitness, as well as working with Kathleen and Clare. From the minute I wanted to sign up for the classes, Clare was so helpful and accommodating. Kathleen shares a lot of knowledge during her instructing. I learned so much about pregnancy and delivery during my classes from Kathleen and the other pregnant women in the class. I'm so happy I enrolled and recommend it to anyone who is pregnant! I'm looking forward to the Mom & Baby classes this summer after I deliver! Thank you for providing such an insightful opportunity and open forum. It's made the entire process feel much more manageable!

I wanted to send you some pics of our Bring Your Own Baby play group that we formed after all meeting in our Oh Baby class while pregnant. We have all become such amazing friends, and it has been so much fun watching our babies grow. Thank you from all of us for putting a program together that brings first-time moms like us together.

Oh Baby Fitness is such an awesome, unique company that allows pregnant women to connect with other pregnant women in a positive way. I've never experienced anything like it, and I'm so glad to have found it!!
This has been my favorite fitness class that I've taken in a long time - including pre-pregnancy. Kathleen is motivating and challenging and the class format inspires community. I'm incredibly impressed with Oh Baby Fitness. Make-ups are easy and fun since you have the flexibility to take other classes and the instructors are very skilled and attentive.
I’ve been recommending your classes to every expecting mother I meet – the service you all provide is wonderful and truly has such a positive impact on the women it touches.
With a grateful heart,
Everything went amazingly well with my delivery, and I believe a lot of credit goes to Oh Baby! Fitness!The doctors and nurses were amazed at how fast I progressed and that I only needed to push for 40 minutes! They were also very impressed at how effectively and efficiently I pushed. I was the fastest delivery of the day! I believe that the exercises that I did through your program facilitated the easy delivery. I also believe that exercising until the very end really paid off.
Thanks so much,
Thank you so much for all the classes that you offered during my pregnancy! Not only did I feel great about myself, I met a really great friend! Keep up the good work and I look forward to Mom and Baby classes!
Water aerobics class is my favorite hour of the week. I look forward to it so much! It makes me feel so great :) Thanks for providing such a wonderful opportunity for expecting women!
This was the third series of Pilates classes I took with Oh Baby and I couldn't be happier. I would have been lost without the relationships and sharing I experienced through the class. Kathleen was amazing, as she always is. If you were to ask me what I am going to miss about being pregnant, it would be my Oh Baby classes! I can't wait for the go ahead from the doctor to start the classes with baby!
I was able to deliver my daughter without any medication, as I hoped, and the labor was about 5 hours long total. I really think that all the classes I took with Oh Baby helped us stay strong during the delivery. Thank you so much for all your support during my pregnancy!! The classes and meeting all the pregnant ladies made my pregnancy so much fun!!
I am THRILLED that I found Oh Baby Fitness! It has VERY SIGNIFICANTLY improved the experience of my pregnancy.
I wanted to thank you for offering all these wonderful classes. This is probably the best thing I have done for myself throughout my pregnancy. The instructors are great, and having the support of other pregnant women is truly wonderful! I am 34 weeks pregnant and feel more in shape now than before I got pregnant. This has helped me so much in feeling confident about labor/delivery which is just around the corner!
Thank you so much for all your program has done for me. I can't wait to take more classes with my little bundle of joy.
I just want to let you know what a TERRIFIC instructor Karen is!!!! Two words - LOVE HER!!!! Thanks so much for Oh Baby! I love it and Karen!!!

As a pregnancy aquatics newbie, I have to say, it's more than a class..it's an experience.
I thought the Mom & Baby Pilates class was wonderful. It was such a supportive environment and so much fun, yet a great workout!
The Mom & Baby Pilates class is AWESOME! A great way to work out and get to be with other moms and babies. It's nice to be with other people who are going through the same thing as you, especially as a first time mom.
I would like to say that this program has been extremely beneficial not only for my physical health, but my emotional health as well. My husband is currently deployed and I really don't have any one else local, however, I always look forward to going to class. Everyone has been very supportive and of course we can all relate to one another for the most part. Kathleen (our instructor) is a blast, she is very entertaining, friendly and welcoming. We all love the class.
Please see the pics below: I promised the other ladies in the class that I will pass the pictures on, everyone is so diverse in the class, the pictures are going to be shared around the world.
I just wanted to stay thanks for giving a space for expectant mothers to not only exercise and feel good about themselves but also a place to form friendships. I took water aerobics from 13 weeks until the very end when Landon was born. Meeting and forming bonds with other women who were delivering near me was great. After the fact it gave me someone to call and talk with, exchange stories, ask questions, and go out to lunch!
I also wanted to thank you for providing mommy and me classes going back to work was hard, and all of my time with Landon is precious. The mommy and me classes offers me an opportunity to not only get in shape but spend time with Landon. We both loved the class last week, it was a great bonding experience. It also gives a chance to spend time with our water aerobics friends!
Our instructor, Jocelyn, was fantastic. She was very energetic and gave me and baby a great work out every week. We loved it!!
This is my second pregnancy with Oh Baby! Fitness and taking classes with Kathleen. In a word: AWESOME!
Ellie and I love Oh Baby! Fitness and have made some great friends. I could not work out when I was pregnant and searched all over for some type of swimming class at my doctor's recommendation when I saw an ad in the Decatur newsletter. The pool was the best place to be, and I looked forward to the pregnancy aqua class all week long.
My daughter Ellie and I have also taken the post-natal pilates and H2Oh Baby classes. Who thought working out could be so fun?! I did not really know anyone else with kids until I started taking Oh Baby classes, and it has made such a difference! I have made friends that I can share experiences with and Ellie has friends too!

I love your Oh Baby! Fitness classes! I went from 17 weeks to my 39th week. I still keep in touch with the other women from the class and the instructor as well. (Instructor) Kathleen Donahoe rocks! :)
Saturday's Mom & Baby H2O class was a huge hit with Baby Lauren! Kathleen is such an excellent instructor and took extra time with me to make sure Lauren and I did the back float and dunk just right. It's so comforting and confidence building to have someone as capable as her to guide us. As an added bonus, two of the gals that I was in the pregnancy aqua class with were also in this class. It was awesome to catch up with them.
One of the things that I have really enjoyed has been the relationship building that takes place during class.
Having been pretty active before I got pregnant (cycling, running, water skiing), I was hard-pressed to find a form of exercise that could accommodate my pregnancy. Oh Baby! Fitness fit the bill. Not only did I find exercise opportunities that were tailored to my pregnant state, I met some great other moms-to-be who could appreciate all my talk of pregnancy and babies.
Toward the last few weeks, I looked forward to my aqua aerobics class all week- it was probably my favorite thing about being pregnant! The instructors I had (Kathleen, Sarah, and Jessica) were not only fantastic instructors, they were great fun to talk with about all things pregnancy-related.
I had recently moved to the Atlanta area and just found out I was pregnant. I was looking for opportunities to meet people when my ob/gyn suggested joining some exercise group. I searched online and discovered Oh Baby! Fitness. Best discovery I've made since moving to Atlanta. I love the exercise classes they provide, the instructors are wonderful and the opportunity to know other mothers and mothers-to-be is invaluable.
I love Oh! Baby Fitness. I started taking classes in my 16th week of my pregnancy and am now in week 33. The classes are part excercise and part therapy. They've made my pregnancy so much better! And Kathleen is great. You can tell she really cares.
