Dovercourt mom, Megan Bocking, started prenatal classes at Dovercourt to keep fit during her pregnancy. “The staff are awesome and gave me challenging workouts that were pregnancy safe. I also met a bunch of great new mom friends and got to know their babies in postnatal classes…The thing that sets Dovercourt apart is definitely the staff who are so welcoming, accommodating to baby needs and give a variety of workouts! I’m honestly not sure who loves Dovercourt more, my daughter or me!”
