Pregnancy by Umi

Our Pregnancy course will enrich this significant life chapter for any woman who watches it. Over the course of 7 modules, our Pregnancy bolt-on course builds on Essentials by Umi to bring you up-to-speed on everything you need to know about how your pregnancy affects your body. 

This is stuff that you won’t be taught in a typical antenatal class but it will set you up for a more comfortable, informed and empowered pregnancy and birth. Learn about how pregnancy affects your pelvic floor, breathing and abdominal wall (and why this even matters), find out how common pregnancy complaints (for example, constipation and sickness) will challenge your core health, discover practical ways to support your evolving body through pregnancy, get all the up-to-date information about exercising during pregnancy, and soak up loads of handy hints to make you feel more informed as you prepare for birth, whether you’re hoping for a vaginal delivery or planning a C-section.
