A debilitating bout of post-natal depression spurred fitness instructor Aimee Oliver to set up exercise classes just for mums.

Keeping in shape has always been a big part of life for the 31-year-old, who lives in Portadown with husband Matthew (32) and children Lily (5) and two-year-old Jack.

When she became pregnant with her first child, she was working full- time as a fitness instructor as well as captaining the Northern Ireland volleyball team.
