Not what I was looking for

"I know you aren't supposed to exercise heavily when pregnant, but this video I wouldn't even consider exercise. It was not at all what I had hoped it to be."
Two thumbs down

"There is no actually excrise section in this video. She show you how to do a few exercises but does not go into any kind of routine you should follow. Also she talks entirely too much, very boring and long."
Instruction is Thorough

"Before my pregnancy I was a frequent pilates practitioner and believe strongly in the benefits of core strength. I wanted to know how to modify pilates once pregnant to continue to reap the benefits, and this DVD is pretty good for that. The instructor is very thorough in explaining the moves. I have been surprised by how gentle all pregnancy workouts seem to be, including this one, so that was a surprise but apparently not that unique. The moves shift position frequently from lying to sitting or standing so that is good for the body and baby, although a little bit of a pain to keep arranging everything you'll need (towels and pillows). This DVD also contains Kegel-style exercises, which is a nice feature. I do not regularly follow along with this DVD as a workout, but it was good education for someone like me who already had a repertoire of pilates and wants to learn to modify it."
