Being fit and active during pregnancy has well documented benefits for both mom and baby, but knowing how to safely adapt your workouts to your changing body, or knowing where to start if you weren’t particularly active before pregnancy, can be challenging. Particularly if you suffer from issues such as Pelvic Girdle Pain. As can understanding the complexity of the pelvic floor and “those” exercises that your midwife asks you about from time to time.
Take the stress away by joining one of my pregnancy group exercise classes or by allowing me to design a bespoke programme for you.
Either way, you’ll benefit from expert functional training that will help your body to cope with the demands of pregnancy, labour and day-to-day life as a mom.
My specialist pregnancy exercise programmes combine appropriate cardio, strength and conditioning work with stretches and releases to keep you active throughout pregnancy.
Suitable from 12-40 weeks pregnant and for all abilities, my sessions will help your body to cope with the demands of pregnancy, labour and day-to-day life (even if you weren’t particularly active before pregnancy).
And all of my pregnancy clients have a priority place in my schedule and post-natal programmes when little one arrives.

I didn’t exercise regularly pre-pregnancy so I was worried if I would cope. But I did cope, and I felt my strength and fitness building up week by week, despite getting more and more pregnant! I had a good delivery and I do credit Kerry for helping to prepare me physically for that. She’s an absolute superstar!
The perfect combination between manageable exercise and socialising with tonnes of opportunities to ask all of my silly first time mum questions and make really valuable friendships that have supported me throughout pregnancy and those first few months (which are tough!)
For someone who has never really done classes for anything before, I really feel these classes have improved my fitness, confidence and generally lifted my mood. Kerry is absolutely brilliant and the classes cover more than just fitness - I’ve learned loads about labour, birth plans and general motherhood.
Kerry is a great motivator and definitely cares about the wellness of her clients, couldn’t ask for someone more committed.
