Give your body the strength it needs at the time it needs it most.
Research has proven that exercising during pregnancy can reduce the risk of complications by up to 25%. This includes a 25% reduction in perinatal depression and a 40% reduction in the risk of gestational diabetes. Importantly, exercising whilst pregnant is also proven to be safe – with no link between exercise and the risk of having a low-birth weight baby, preterm delivery or miscarriage.

This includes advice and strength training to prevent and manage pelvic girdle pain and other musculoskeletal issues typically seen during this period.
