  • I LOVE your workout videos!! I’m currently pregnant with my 2nd child and really didn’t workout with my first one. But I been watching and doing workouts with you going on a month now and going into my 3rd trimester and I wanna thank you so much for getting me moving and really motivating me through the whole video! I will definitely still workout with you after I deliver

  • These are great videos. They are so helpful for women who want to stay fit during their pregnancy. Thank you for making such great content. Keep up the good work!!!

  • I don’t like this session because it’s so fast which makes it hard to follow each change in the position. It will be better if it’s in a slow pace only.

  • I am 19 weeks preganant and finally gathered the strength to start working out in preganancy. Thoroughly enjoyed the stretches. Thank you!

  • This was a great workout to get heart pumping and a mild sweat going! I didn’t have anyone home to hold the chair so I just did mine on the floor! Thanks for this ��

  • I think this my favourite one of your videos. I am 36 weeks pregnant, have been doing your exercises and yoga for 3rd trimester from 32 weeks and it has made a huge difference to my back and pelvic ache! Also very good for relieving stress and staying energised during lockdown. Thank you so much for making these videos!

  • A little challenging at 39 weeks, but felt good modifying using blocks! I loved the sphinx version of child’s pose since child’s pose has been difficult ever since my belly has started to appear! Thank you!

  • Ah i’m so glad i found your video. I was looking for something a little more challenging than walking, this definitely woke my muscles up. Thank you very much!

  • Quick question, so I am almost 8 months pregnant and have never really done any workout bcs my motivations level was like 0. So my question is if it is safe for me to start all this now? And if this would also help me after I deliver or should I do a other workout than?

  • Love Love Love your Pre-Natal workouts! They’re keeping me going & active through the crazy lockdown so thank you!!! I’m only in my 6th month & have 3 more to go so would love to see more workouts like this one! Pretty please do a few more pregnancy workout videos ❤️

  • Best pregnancy workout that I could find on here. All the other ones are not challenging enough for me, this one makes me work ���� 29 weeks pregnant now. Thank you for this x

  • I worked out before my pregnancy. But because I have history of miscarriages, my husband don’t allow me. And when i was 8w, i changed my bed sheet and there was spotting on my panty. So, iam worry to start work out again. Iam currently 13w. I miss working out.

  • I found your channel earlier this year for diastasis recti repair and then found out I was pregnant! I love all your videos and am glad that I can now do your prenatal workouts. I’m currently 15 weeks and 2 days with baby #3! ����

  • Quick question, I went to the bellies inc website & it said to measure yourself at 30 weeks for the ab system, which leads me to believe its for postpartum and therefore not a preventative measure for ab separation? Is this a correct assumption? Or do you recommend wearing it throughout pregnancy? If so, how would I choose the right measurement for it if I’m just starting my second trimester? Thank you.

  • 21 weeks today! Thanks to your videos I’m working out at least 4 days a week and it’s helped me deal with lots of mental and physical struggles. Thank you so much!

  • I have fibroid,endocervicitis and low-lying placenta,but rite now m 29 weeks of pregnancy,last time i was releases some virginal bleeding and doctor recommended me bed rest,and recommended 6 weeks injection.So,can i do this prenatal yoga????

  • I’ve been doing prenatal yoga and working out all throughout my pregnancy but with the quarantine had to youtube it so thank you. Still think this may be for more advanced peeps? I wish there was a little more dumbed down directions. I don’t know yoga pose names or know what my body is supposed to do with a big belly so i had to keep looking up at the tv to see what i had to do as i was doing it. I don’t have to do that with other videos. May be good to give the instruction and show it before doing it for real and explain what exactly each part of the body is doing and what to do with belly or modifications. Thanks!!!

  • I’m 28 weeks pregnant very grateful to find your videos (so useful). THANK YOU SO MUCH. I will hopefully continue practicing till labour ��❤️

  • 17 weeks pregnant and this is the first proper exercise aside from yoga and walking that I have done since becoming pregnant. Excellent short workout, will try to do these daily to keep my fitness up throughout.

  • I do not want to gain excess weight during my pregnancy will this workout help me keep my weight in track?
    Its my 1st child and im 4weeks pregnant.

  • When is it good to start using the belly band during pregnancy? Second trimester? third trimester? or when you start to have a bit of belly? Thx!

  • Are you saying 50 0r 15 because if your saying 50 dam i had to keep stoping I was getting out of breath and start again lol and I was not in shape before I got pregnant but I want to make sure I don’t gain more than I have to and I don’t want to add more of my mommy pouch

  • 26 weeks! Have done yoga here and there this pregnancy but it’s been hard with morning sickness and just overall laziness. This was a great workout that I’m going to try and tackle daily! Thank you!!
