You will tone muscles giving yourself the chance to get back to pre-pregnancy weight faster, and maintain your body and keep it injury free. You will learn how to work your core muscles around your tummy to manage carrying the baby in pregnancy and beyond, and have the chance to become strong to carry around all the baby paraphernalia and hold your baby whilst feeding without back and shoulder pain.
It is an opportunity to have time for you. Better than that though, after the session your blood will be full of endorphins which make you and baby feel good. Your baby is shown to become fitter too when the mother exercises, a good reason for mummy-to-be time.
