1st Trimester

These workout videos are ideal for the 1st trimester of pregnancy (week 1 to week 13). My goal is to help you through your pregnancy and to feel better. These workouts and instructional videos will help prevent diastasis, SI joint pain and pubic symphysis pain which are 3 of the most common pregnancy disorders. I go into all of the considerations in much greater detail in my 1st trimester intro video, please watch before you start any of the workouts. Make sure to have your Doctor's clearance before partaking in any workout.
