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 support with fitness, postnatal rehabilitation and massage therapies. I 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 2005. 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 career as a Midwife over the last 21 years (of which I am still actively practicing) has given me the insight and experience to work with this specialist group.

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 seeing my friends, exercising, eating well and going for regular treatments and massages to keep my health and wellness in check.

My mission is to give the best possible modern, research based methods, to assist women's health and fitness in their childbearing years and beyond.
