It has now been proven beyond doubt that safe and well managed exercise in the pre and post-natal period is highly beneficial to both mother and baby. Many expectant mothers are now very aware of this and are actively seeking professional guidance in managing an exercise programme that will support and enhance their pregnancy experience.
