I know I have spoken about tips for exercising during pregnancy before, which you can read here, but I wanted to talk to you about what you should stay away from, making sure your trainer has the correct qualifications to train you pre and postnatal and also what modifications you can do for some exercises.

Exercise and movement is so important to keep up during pregnancy, don't be scared of it, you just need to be informed and know what you can and can't do.
Take it easy. Be kind to yourself. And only move in ways that feel good to you. If you feel uncomfortable at any time, stop, it is okay. Make sure you also take regular breaks to allow your heart rate to drop down a bit.
It is also okay if you just don't feel up to it. It is no secret that I didn't exercise for the first 3 or so months of my pregnancy, I just didn't have the energy. My body needed me to rest and that is what I did.
If you have any questions on exercising during pregnancy or stretching please leave them in the comments below or if you feel embarrassed or shy please send me an email...
Other wise, what exercise are you doing or did you do during your pregnancy? Did you think it made a difference to how you felt and your energy levels? I look forward to hearing from you.
Be happy & healthy,
