A post shared by Brit Williams (@fitbritcollective) on

“I wrote Mind, Body, Bump because it was the book I wanted to read during my pregnancy.

So many sources told me what was happening to my body and my baby, but none told me what it meant with regards to my training, nutrition or mental wellbeing.

I want women to feel as empowered as they do enlightened.” – Brit Williams @FitBritCollective

Divided by trimester, the book offers a month by month breakdown of what is happening with your body & the kind of workouts that are right for each stage.

Anna’s First Trimester Workout

Exercising While Pregnant: Is it Safe?

Yes, exercising through your pregnancy is safe, healthy & 100% encouraged.

If you led an active lifestyle before becoming pregnant, you should be fine to carry on with your regular workout routine.


Anna’s Second Trimester Workout

Whether that’s jogging, spinning, pregnancy yoga, aerobics, Pilates, weights, swimming or something else – just be careful and don’t push too hard.

Your aim at this stage should be to maintain your current level rather than trying to reach peak fitness.

Of course, it’s best to talk it through with your doctor before beginning any new pregnancy workout routine.

Be sure to let your instructor know that you are pregnant before the start of any gym class.

And If you start to feel off at any point, just stop and take a break. Now is not the time to be testing your limits.

Whatever pregnancy workouts you choose for your nine months, make sure you’re having fun and feeling strong.

Postnatal Exercise: Keep fit, bond with baby & boost your mood!

A little gentle exercise can be a great way to boost your mood and shift that extra baby weight after baby is born. Once you’ve cleared it with your GP after the initial 6 to 8 weeks recovery time, you are good to go and can start to get active!

Why not join a specialised postnatal fitness class? This is a great way to get out and about and meet other new mums, and you can be sure that all the exercises are specially tailored to what your body needs. Many classes will even welcome your baby too, either to join in with the class or with a crèche service, so there’s no need to arrange for a babysitter! Postnatal yoga is a great way to stretch out and tone up your muscles in a relaxed environment – check out these simple poses to try at home. Or if you fancy a more active approach, why not go along to a Buggyfit class near you for a brisk walk with baby in the buggy and a safe workout routine with other new mums.

Of course you can also exercise at home, so slip on a pair of comfy maternity leggings and dig out your trainers – it’s time to get active! Check out’s list of fun exercises to try at home with baby, and this list from Good Housekeeping to try in the garden! Here are a few of our favourite fun exercises for mummy and baby to try together!


Kiss ups


Postnatal exercise with baby kiss ups

This is just about the sweetest way we can think of to start toning your tum!

Lie flat on your back with your knees bent and feet placed firmly on the floor in a position ready to do sit ups. Sit baby half way up the slope of your thighs, holding him in place around his middle. Then simply do a set of regular sit ups, giving baby a kiss at the top of each one! Aim for 3 sets of 12.


Tickle Lunges


Postnatal exercise with baby and buggy

Tone up and make baby laugh!

Put baby in his buggy and face him, with your left foot back about three feet and your hands on your waist. Then bend both legs until your right thigh is parallel to the ceiling, making sure your right knee stays in line with your ankle. When you reach the bottom of the lunge, tickle baby and make him laugh, then slowly return to a standing position, pushing through your right heel. Aim for three sets of 12 on each side.


Alphabet Abs

Postnatal exercise - alphabet abs



Teach baby his ABCs and tighten up your abs while you’re at it!

Lying flat on your back with baby next to you, place your arms at your sides and extend your legs straight up toward the ceiling, feet together.
Then recite the alphabet slowly to baby, drawing each letter in the air with your toes. Keep the moves slow and be sure to keep your belly button pulled in toward the floor. Aim to make it through the entire alphabet!
