It is important not to overdo it during pregnancy, to eat right and to always consult a physician before starting a new exercise routine. There are gentle and effective ways to stay healthy and relaxed for every level of fitness. Here are our picks for some of the best pregnancy workouts that will help you get your pre-baby body back quicker. 

Every mother workout

Every Mother 

Founded by Leah Keller, this is a new approach to fitness that was primarily developed as a pre and postnatal total body workout, but is becoming more and more popular with women and men wanting to correctly train their abdominal muscles to achieve a firm, flat and toned stomach. 

Every-Mother reinforces the strength, resilience and elasticity of both the linea alba and the rectus abdominis - areas of our tummies mostly changed by carrying a baby for 9 months. Created to keep moms safe and strong through pregnancy and beyond, Leah empowers and equips women to exercise safely during pregnancy, labor with confidence, and restore core strength and total body fitness after birth.
