Spirit of Women Introduces "Madalene's Moms" Classes in the New Year

In the upcoming year, Forrest General Hospital’s Spirit of Women will continue classes for new and expectant mothers, but with a special touch. In memory of Madalene Daniell, who provided more than 40 years of “Fitness for Two” classes in the Pine Belt, the program will now be known as “Madalene’s Moms.” A former class member, Amanda Sharp, will be continuing her predecessor’s legacy as the new instructor. We are so excited to be able to continue these amazing classes for the women and children in our community.
The cost is $20 per four-week session along with a small Eventbrite fee at checkout. Space is limited.


  • In a support group environment, the classes combine stretching, strengthening, and isolation exercises and awareness with education topics around pregnancy and labor.


  • This one-session class teaches labor and delivery breathing techniques, and the coach’s role throughout the childbirth experience. The coach and mother-to-be attend together.


  • Geared toward the early walkers, often 11 to 22 months old. Children experience activities that will develop physical, mental, and social skills.


  • First-year mothers can share stories about their first-year experiences as they learn developmental milestones and fun playtime activities.
