When you’re expecting, it’s important to keep moving. Your body moves, stretches and changes in lots of ways during pregnancy. Particularly the lower part of the body (around your pelvis, pubic and back area).
Maintaining your health and wellbeing during your pregnancy can be a key part to reducing pain in these areas, as well as, increasing energy, enhancing a positive body image and aiding in your recovery post-delivery.
To ensure you have the right routine for the right stage in your pregnancy, each exercise has been designed to focus on movements appropriate for each trimester. With only an exercise mat, you'll also have the freedom to work out in the comfort of your own home in under 30 minutes.
So, throw on your favourite active wear, grab a mat and find a space in your home to begin your guided prenatal exercises with Laura.
