About Mama Wellness

Meet Nina

My name is Nina Parnham and I am the founder of Mama Wellness – a place where women who are pregnant or who have birthed a baby, can come for expert Fitness and Rehabilitation and Massage. We aim to give you a quality and holistic approach to wellness throughout one of the most important times of your life, to help you cope with the demands of motherhood.

I have focused on Pregnant and Postnatal Fitness, Wellbeing and Rehabilitation since 2010. I enjoy witnessing the rewards women have experienced when given the right tools and information to recover safely during this important time in their lives. My full-time career as a Midwife over the last 18 years has given me the insight and experience to work with this specialist group. Check out what others have said about Mama Wellness

I have two young children and feel that I have both personal and professional knowledge, to understand the challenges women face with looking after their health and fitness during childbearing. I enjoy exercising and eating well and go for regular massages.

I am on a quest for how I can best serve women in their childbearing years and beyond. I research, teach and practice modern methods in the therapies, fitness and recovery services I provide. I ensure that I stay relevant and fresh in my approach to caring for this specialist population.
