there is an informative part in the beginning telling you about correct posture etc from a dr. its in different parts for each of the trimesters. the exercises are in 12 min blocks and can be adapted for your current situation. its suitable for before, during and after pregnancy. first time doing the dvd you may find the exercises difficult to follow but once you are used to it, it will become easier. the exercises are at a level that even someone who hadn t exercised before could do quite easily. the dvd is not the most modern of dvds but pregnancy and exercise has not really changed that much over the years. i bought the dvd as we are planning another baby and thought it was important to follow a specialist exercise plan before, during and after.

Great pre and post natal exercise dvd!
I bought this DVD while pregnant with my first baby because I wanted to be fit in pregnancy but was unsure what was safe and what wasn't. It really helps to have a set routine to follow like this DVD.
I was unsure when I was thinking about buying it as it looked so old but the exercises are still really good and the sections where a doctor is giving information still seem to be accurate.
I would recommend this DVD as it is a very gentle but effective way of getting appropriate exercise in pregnancy and has different sections dependant on how far along in pregnancy you are.

Before and after Preganacy - dated but good
I bought this because it had good reviews on Amazon. I can't comment on the after but, it is very informative in the intro and is generally easy to use. Simple to include into your life as broken down into 12 min sections for toning and aerobics for 1st, 2nd and 3rd trimester. It seems as it was filmed about 10 years ago for vhs so the hair and music are dated but if that doesn't matter too much to you then this is a good exercise dvd for keeping fit through your pregnancy.
This dvd is perfect for pregnant women, its gentle, easy to understand and not full of women wanting to be a size zero in hours. I was worried about my fitness when i found out i was pregnant, no need now! You can alternate toning with fitness and its only 15 minutes each workout! Its a few years old, but so much better than the unrealistic dvds we get now.
Pending the after pregnancy stage!....
I used this exercise regimen on video throughout both my pregnancies (now over 10 years ago) to good effect, and have been looking for one that is as good as this since. Having tried several others over the years I decided to go back to the Y-plan, partly because I slipped a disc in my lower back and wanted something gentle to start with. This is perfect and if I feel it is getting too easy I repeat the exercise programme 2 to 3 times. I would recommend this to anyone, pregnant or not, as it is an easy, gentle way to keep flexible, and it brings back fond memories of my own pregnancies!
