Calling all mums-to-be! The 6 best pregnancy workout apps to download during lockdown

Stay fit from the comfort of your own home…

Doctors and midwives agree that keeping fit and healthy when you’re expecting is important for you and your baby – by remaining active in pregnancy, your body will find it easier to adapt to your changing shape. That’s why pregnancy workout apps are indispensable, as you can exercise from the comfort of your own home, whenever suits you.

And did you know that workouts during pregnancy can alleviate back pain, bloating and leg cramps, strengthen the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles as well as boost your energy levels to prepare your body for labour? But a pregnancy workout doesn’t mean taking on huge new challenges, more maintaining your health with moderate forms of exercise.

Safety is always the number one priority, so make sure you warm up properly, drink water throughout and take the time to cool down. Reduce the number of workouts that cause your heart rate to rise and when in doubt, stick to low intensity forms such as yoga and Pilates.

Since every pregnancy is different, always check with your GP before embarking on a new exercise routine and remember that your strength and energy levels will fluctuate throughout trimesters. We’ve rounded up five of the best prenatal workout plans you can do from home whilst group classes are postponed. These virtual methods will help you stay strong and feel fit throughout – and come added with a celebrity personal trainer or two!
