Prenatal Pilates Video
I'm 24 weeks along and feeling great. I wanted to get into a good groove with a prenatal workout video. I spotted this one online (so it didn't necessarily come by recommendation).
It was a comfortable routine but not the challenging workout I was looking for to prepare my body for delivery. It would probably be good for someone who had doctors orders to take it easy. After it's over you definitely feel more limber and it does feel great to stretch everything out.
I next purchased the "Perfect Pregnancy Workout". This video was exactly what I was looking for. Very challenging and a workout that I'll be using post-baby, too, to get back into shape. The instructor is a professional trapeze artist who is quite pregnant herself (the instructor in the first video was not pregnant), so you feel that if she can do it, you can, too! There were beginner, intermediate and advanced moves for several of the exercises which were great.
Between the two videos, I'd recommend the "Perfect Pregnancy Workout" for someone who is truly interested in 'working out'.Read full review

This DVD is not really for pregnant women.
I bought this DVD because someone recommended that I try a prenatal pilates workout. I had done Winsor Pilates before I was pregnant, as well as Tae-Bo every day for 6 years, so I am no stranger to exercise or video workouts. The first thing I noticed when I put this video on was that no one in the video was pregnant. That should have alerted me right away but I thought I would try it anyway, after all, it is only a 20 minute workout. However, several of the moves in this video were not intended for pregnant women to do. I know this because I have thoroughly researched what is safe during pregnancy and at what times during pregnancy certain physical moves should be avoided. So my recommendation is to avoid this video enitrely during pregnancy. It would be alright postnatal I suppose, but I haven't reached that point yet to try it. In conclusion, I reiterate my title in saying 'This DVD is not really for pregnant women.'Read full review

Really short workout, the participants arent pregnant!
This DVD is a lot shorter than I would have liked. It's one 20 min prenatal workout and one 20 min postnatal.
Very Low impact for those who are in their third trimester already and not very physical normally.
I will still use it as a type of cool down/meditation type experience.

not worth the money
This DVD was very disappointing. I really am surprised that it's out and for sale because it was produced very unprofesionally. They have two women doing the exercises, one is the aerobics "expert" and the other I guess a mom-to-be, but it's almost comical as they do the exercises side by side and sometimes accidentally hit each others arms and other mess-ups that go by unnoticed apparently by the producers. The way the DVD is narrated it also kindof funny--the instructor doesn't actually talk during the video, but her voice has been recorded and it's run while they show the two women doing the video--maybe it was a nice idea, but it turned out weird. I don't recommend this DVD, there's got to be a better choice out there.

Somewhat disappointed with the product.
Didn't really enjoy the workout. It doesn't seem like it's designed for pregnant women. I'm almost 28 weeks pregnant and I could not do most of the exercises. I have some other yoga and Pilates DVDs at home and they are no different than this one.
