  3. Many mums prior to becoming pregnant participate in regular exercise - why give up when you are pregnant? The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists suggests that: All women should be encouraged to participate in aerobic and strength-conditioning exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle during their pregnancy. RCOG statement No.4 2006 Research over the years has highlighted many benefits to exercising during pregnancy if your pregnancy is low risk. Some of the positives may include.... ~ A sense of wellbeing and confidence in changing body shape. ~ Relief from some of the common ailments in pregnancy, backache, varicose veins, tiredness, leg swelling. ~ Can reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and depression. ~ Helps prepare for the physical challenge of labour. ~ There is even evidence that suggests that women who exercise during pregnancy tend to have shorter labour time and fewer delivery complications (Clapp JF 1992) Keep Mums Fit is now in its 7 year of providing SAFE effective Midwife led exercise classes for beginners and current exercisers. The class not only provides exercise - meeting like minded women is a great way to forge lasting friendships giving much needed support at a time of great change. following the class we discuss many aspects of pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period. we participate in: ~breathing techniques ~massage ~labour dance ~Relaxation ~Stretch ~Pelvic Floor exercise and much more - regular speakers attend to help prepare you both physically and mentally on this special journey. If you would like to know more, need advise on how to safely exercise, during or after your pregnancy please contact me. I will email you ASAP. All details can be found on my website. _______ http://www.keepmumsfit.com http://www.katecampbellprofessionalfitness.com
  4. I agree with above....functional multi directional exercises, squats, lunges strengthen the legs and muscles for walking. Another great way to improve walking fitness and stamina is including different levels of walking. Level 1:strolling short strides, arms by side, chatting. Level 2:longer strides, arms propelling forward 90o faster pace. Level 3: almost Olympic! ( hip swinging action) To progress add hills, fast walk to tree then recovery walk to next and so on.

  9. Thank you katie B 23 and Afaaq. The event was great and everyone that came enjoyed the recipes and health games.
  10. Hi lollipop. Thank you that will be great. I've got some fab friends who are happy to bake. Will be nice if you could join us. :-)
  11. So far Bluegirlblue - I am totally amazed by the lack of support for a great way of continuing to eat foods we like. I take it you have no good ideas re healthy foods and Don't wish to help! Some people are willing to share ideas, help and support. With this being a food group it would have been much appreciated. Many people enjoy creating different recipes and are happy to help. By the response of some, you included i feel upset and deflated. With or without help by the foodie group - my event will be fun, informative and with the support of others - my competition will be a success. As for being cheeky - grow up! I genuinely thought people would support and give advice.
  12. You are in the minority, thank goodness - and personally i think it is very rude and unnecessary. I have been made aware by others, this is a habit of yours, therefore I will not be replying to any further of your nasty posts.
  13. I can see by the 2 negative posts you have posted about me personally, that you obviously have a lot of spare time on your hands and like to criticise others. The job I do is to care, support and bring new life into the world. Very rewarding and satisfying.( does it matter if I get the odd spelling wrong?) I wonder what job you do? People skills is obviously not your strong point?
