"I bought this DVD without the benefit of a review, so I felt a little vulnerable about it. I am 20 weeks pregnant. I searched for DVDs that allowed me to do Pilates while still pregnant. Something about the reviews of those videos caused me to NOT want to get one. So I got this one, and I am VERY happy with it. It definitely works your muscles, but I never felt overly strained or exhausted. It's about 40 minutes, which is great. There is a warm up, a cardio portion, and then a warm down/strengthening portion. What I like about it is the instructor is not pregnant, but she has 2 pregnant women doing the exercises with her--a woman in her 2nd trimester and a woman in her 3rd trimester. And these women will show you the modifications that are recommended for women in those stages of pregnancy. I would definitely recommend this video for someone who is interested in staying fit during her pregnancy. You need weights, a chair, and some pillows, but all can be done in your home easily."
Great video for expectant moms

"I didn't really know what to expect with this video, but since I had the Buff Brides book from a while back and enjoyed it, I thought I'd give it a try. It's a really great video for any expectant moms - if you've never worked out before or if you work out all the time. I worked out a lot before trying this video and it still made me feel pretty sore the next day. But as I've gotten used to all of the squatting and other moves, it's very easy to do and quite enjoyable. It's a soothing video and really does wonders when my back is hurting or I'm just generally feeling uncomfortable. It helps to loosen me up and provide a lot more flexibility and stability. I am 32 weeks now and will continue using it for as long as I can. And I plan to buy Buff Moms once the baby is born!"
Great work out

"I am not a fan of video/dvd workouts. in fact... I am not a fan of group workouts- i like to go in my basement in my makeshift gym and exercise. needless to say I was very skeptical about buying a dvd workout but with a toddler running around i couldn't get to a gym or class. i loved this workout- it wasn't too over-the-top- where I felt like I was tripping over my feet in my bedroom trying to follow some elaborate dance routine between my bed and the wall- it was more weights intensive. Very easy to follow. I actually liked the instructor. i exercise regularly and did not think i could get a good workout following a dvd- i was wrong. i strongly recommend this and i even bought her post-natal dvd too and at 3 months postpartem some of my prenatal jeans are even loose!!"

"To me, this workout is just ok. I haven't been working out for the first four month of my pregnancy, because I had problems with bleeding, but my doctor finally gave me the ok to exercise again. I shopped around for a pregnancy workout DVD, and I ended up buying this one and "The Perfect Pregnancy Workout" based on the good reviews for both. I hate those workout DVD's that make you follow silly dance steps and have an overly perky instructor. I was looking for something to sculpt and tone my muscles all over. Well, I tried this DVD today, and I was not blown away. It starts with a warm up section called "Jump Start Stretching" which is not too bad. Then, it moves into the "Cardio Breeze and Total Body Toning" segment. That's where the problems started. Silly dance moves and perky comments from the instructor! Just what I hate. Also, even though I worked up a sweat, I really didn't feel like my muscles were getting toned at all. And, I felt really silly hopping around in my front room and was hoping the neighbors weren't looking in. The workout closes with the "Re-energizing Floor Work and Flexibility." This section wasn't too bad. One good thing about this DVD is the background looks very inviting and cheerful. I also liked that they had two girls showing the modifications for the second and third trimester, although the girl doing the third trimester modifications doesn't really move a lot and seems slightly uncoordinated at times. I really have mixed feelings about this workout. I might go back to it very late in my third trimester, when I need a more modified workout. For now, I will continue to use "The Perfect Pregnancy Workout" which is great."
