Editorial Reviews

There a variety of associated health benefits to exercise during pregnancy for both the mother and her unborn child/children. However, my recent studies have shown that many women are actually reducing their exercise during pregnancy, which is why Mary Bacon's book is like a breath of fresh air. She gently shows the mother-to-be in a clear and concise manner, how vital exercise and diet is and importantly, how it impacts her unborn child. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this easy-to-read guide for any current or future mother ~ Mel Hayman, PhD (CQUniversity, Queensland, Australia)My personal experience in working with Mary Bacon is that she is a true expert in the pre and postnatal field. Whether you are a world class athlete like me or a regular mum, you will greatly benefit from her expertise. Mary has a great ability to make pregnancy fitness simple and easy to follow. You too will enjoy this book as much as I did.~Jana Pittman, Olympic Medalist, dual World Champion and Commonwealth Games Gold MedalistMary Bacon is a highly skilled personal trainer with many years' experience. The book is excellently written and well researched and it will be of great help to any expectant mother!~ Stephen Giulieri B. App. Sci.Mary's greatest joy is holding a client's baby and feeling a sense of contribution to the health and happiness of mother, partner and baby. I trained with Mary after having my first child and during my second pregnancy. We used the 'Blood Pressure Cuff' biofeedback tool to do pelvic floor and deep abdominal contraction exercises properly. I noticed a great improvement and faster recovery after the birth of my second child by working on my core and pelvic floor. My husband and I are still training with Mary.Training with Mary Bacon throughout both my pregnancies was definitely the best thing I did to help keep my body strong in preparation for childbirth. I had always heard about the importance of pelvic floor exercises for women; however it wasn't until Mary began training me using a variety of techniques that I actually learned to perform them correctly. After two natural deliveries I found this training helped me maintain the strength in my pelvic floor area and regain my strength after both deliveries. I highly recommend Mary's style of training to all pregnant women looking to maintain their fitness throughout their pregnancies.~Helen - Castle Hill
