IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ

Before you try any of the video workouts below, please be sure

to follow the instructors guidance & read the

TMM leaflets for pregnant and postnatal women.

Being active in pregnancy is safe for most women, but some may be experiencing conditions or symptoms  where there are additional considerations. If you are experiencing these, or have any concerns, please speak to your healthcare professional beforehand.

When deciding which activity you may like to try, it is important to consider your current activity level.  Guidance provided by the UK Chief Medical Officers advises healthy pregnant women, with uncomplicated pregnancies, who are already active to keep going but to listen to their bodies and adapt, while women who are new to activity should start gradually. 

 

Postnatal women, depending on birth experience and recovery may resume or start activity gradually and build up intensity levels over time. If you experience any signs or symptoms of pelvic floor and/or abdominal wall dysfunction you should not resume higher intensity activities and you should seek out the advice of a specialist pelvic health physio therapist.

To help you find suitable activities to try at home, we have worked with a panel of experts to review and select a range of workout content. We have stated if an activity may be considered low, moderate or vigorous intensity, and if it is recommended for women who are already active or new to activity. If you have any questions about whether a particular activity is safe for you, and/or you suffer discomfort while taking part, please get in touch with your healthcare professional before continuing with the activity.
