Pregnancy Exercise Guide

Congratulations on becoming pregnant!

This is a beautiful time to appreciate just how capable the female body really is. Even though everyone’s prenatal journey may be different, I believe every women has the right to move their body in a safe and healthy way for not only their baby, but for themselves.


I have designed an evidence-based pregnancy exercise guide with over 80 trimester specific workouts for you to work through at your own level. Each session includes a mobility, stretch, pelvic floor, strength and conditioning component to ensure you are getting the most out of each workout.

The aim of the program is to:

Build and maintain your strength and stability

Keep your core strong and reduce your risk of abdominal separation

Prevent injuries such as pregnancy-related hip or back pain

Reduce your risk of pelvic floor dysfunction

Improve your cardiovascular and endurance fitness to prepare you for labour

Help keep your baby as healthy as possible

The workout style is a Pilates-inspired strength and conditioning circuit and will be accessible from the online eBook that you can access anywhere, anytime.

Before you begin the program, there will be various chapters on:

  • What is your pelvic floor and core and why it is important during pregnancy.
  • How to contract and relax your pelvic floor and how to find your deep core muscles.
  • What’s normal and abnormal for bladder health.
  • What’s normal and abnormal for bowel health.
  • Evidence-based safe exercise guidelines during pregnancy, precautions and contraindications to exercise.
  • How to prevent and/or manage your pelvic organ prolapse.
  • Understanding your fatigue point and knowing when to rest.

For each trimester you will be given workouts to target your lower body, upper body and whole body. All you will need is a set of dumbbells between 1-5kg and a soft ball or pillow for the pelvic floor workouts.

For Trimester 1, you will receive:

  • 6 x ‘Lower Body Burn’ workouts
  • 6 x ‘Upper Body + Posture’ workouts
  • 6 x ‘Whole Body Activation’ workouts

For Trimester 2, you will receive:

  • 10 x ‘Lower Body Burn’ workouts
  • 10 x ‘Upper Body + Posture’ workouts
  • 10 x ‘Whole Body Activation’ workouts

For Trimester 3, you will receive:

  • 10 x ‘Lower Body Burn’ workouts
  • 10 x ‘Upper Body + Posture’ workouts
  • 10 x ‘Whole Body Activation’ workouts

The program recommends at least 3 workouts per week but I understand that every one is at a different level of fitness. With this being said, the idea is for you to complete however many workouts you feel you need each week. You will also receive pelvic floor challenges specific to each workout to keep your pelvic floor strong and prevent issues such as urinary leakage.

If you get stuck on how to perform some of the exercises, you can refer to the glossary at the back of the eBook. This is where you will find every single exercise with the appropriate cueing and options to make the exercise heavier or lighter.

The final note is when you purchase the eBook, you will have access to a private Facebook group where you can ask any questions you may have about the program. I’d like it to also become a community where all pregnant mumma’s can connect and support each other through their prenatal journey.

I look forward to watching you flourish throughout your pregnancy, Enjoy!
