Everything you need to know to safely stay in shape during your pregnancy

Many expectant mothers experience dramatic weight gain during pregnancy, but the myth that they shouldn't exercise is just that--a myth. The truth is, regular activity may improve women's ability to cope with pain during labor and combat depression associated with the period just following childbirth. Now Sue Fleming, a longtime personal trainer and author of the highly successful Buff Brides, gives us a comprehensive guide for expectant mothers who want to remain healthy, strong, and fit. Buff Moms-to-Be shares effective exercises (approved by doctors) for ensuring an easier pregnancy, a smoother birth, and the fastest way back to that pre-baby body. Inside you'll discover

• simple strategies for starting an exercise program
• what to expect from your changing body
• safe aerobic exercises, stretches, and strength training
for women at all levels of fitness and all stages of pregnancy
• a complete workout and exercise regimen designed to
ease labor and delivery

Fully illustrated with photographs demonstrating poses and postures, Buff Moms-to-Be is like having your own personal trainer in the comfort of your own home. Sue Fleming's supportive approach to fitness is the perfect aid to the health-savvy expectant mother--and a fun way to make sure you look and feel your best during one of the most joyful times in your life.
