Giving birth is one of the most amazing experiences a woman can have, and who you choose to share this journey with is instrumental to your birthing plan. If you’re expecting your first child, the thought of the delivery room can be very daunting. This is why many women seek the professional services of either a doula or midwife in addition to their obstetrician. But what exactly is the difference between the two?
Exercise in pregnancy (and afterwards) is something I feel is vital to a healthy pregnancy, birth and baby. To get the most out of this and to protect your joints in pregnancy it’s extremely important that you use a personal trainer who specialises in pre and postnatal training. (Ask for a list of their qualifications as I have witnessed many training sessions where pregnant women were being instructed to run and do burpees and star jumps!!)
