With Erin's 3 invigorating exercise progressions, you can ease back into exercise without hurting or overextending yourself. In just 15 minutes a day, you will rehabilitate your back, abdominals, buttocks, inner thighs, and hips-- all the muscle groups affected by your pregnancy and delivery. Erin guides you through each progression and, once you've mastered it, gently urges you to move on to the next challenge. She can take you from the very beginning of your recovery up to one year postpartum. A personal trainer and exercise instructor, Erin hold several certifications, including one in pre/postnatal training. She's also the busy parent of two preschoolers with her husband actor James Denton (Desperate Housewives). Not long ago, she was where you are, and she knows how challenging it can be. That's why she welcomes you into her home and urges you on with her clear, supportive instruction. As Erin says, "Let's get started!"

She works every part of your body just a little bit and I love the stretches.
L. Heine
I love how you only have to dedicate 15 minutes a day to workout, which is easy to squeeze in during a nap.
Jennifer C. Lane
I felt like I could have started it sooner, but it felt so good to start working my muscles.

I forgot I had bought this DVD and started using it about 6 weeks after having had a c-section, and by that time I was pretty much able to skip right to the second workout of the three. (There was also some bonus stretching material for very soon post-partum, which I would have liked to have tried sooner.) While the three workouts seem a bit repetitive in parts, they go by quickly, and soon after you begin you feel as if you're done. I liked the idea of easing back into exercise and not attempting sit-ups or crunches right away, and this workout gave me the confidence to do that and not worry about injuring myself. The instructor has a little bit of a "I know it's hard but it's necessary" tone which can be annoying at times, but overall she's got a nice, motivational approach. The (very short) cameo at the end by her husband James Denton (from Desperate Housewives) is cute, as you see her interact a bit with her own family. I used this DVD for about 6 weeks, at which time i got back to my regular crunches and such.

This is my 6th pregnancy that I am recovering from and this video has been a great help. Erin OBrien gives simple explanations for each movement/exercise used. She explains the "whys" about what a postpartum body is going through and shows sincere concern about her postpartum audience. There are 3 15 minute exercise progressions- completely doable and enjoyable, plus she gives a couple of simple straightfoward tips in each section re: diet and cardio. She also includes stretches you can do beginning the day you return home (which feel so good when you feel so wrecked from pregnancy.) This would make a great gift to a expecting or new mom!

I thought I was going to need something very soft to begin my post pregnancy workouts since Ia had a csection but it turned out that I didnt really. At my 6 wk doc clearance, I did the first 2 groups of excercises once and then went up to the 3rd group. By the 4th day I was a little bored. Before my pregnancy i was an active person and enjoyed yoga, pilates, weights and dancing so this was slow for me. But if you wanna start slow, dont normally workout or had a difficult delivery then this might work best for you.

I am a male Personal Trainer that has a large clientele of females. Two of my clients became pregnant last year and they both asked me to keep training them throughout their pregnancy. I was a little apprehensive about that because of their condition. During their first trimester they both complained that I wasn't the same trainer, that I was being too easy on them. I was hesitant to push them like I did before. So I purchased Erin's DVD and watched it several times until I came up with a routine like hers. I appreciated the fact that Erin was about 9 months pregnant when she shot this DVD. They were both happy that it was challenging but not overly tough. I adjusted the intensity down as they got further along. I'm happy to say that one stayed with me for 8 months and the other for 7 months. Both babies' were healthy when they were born (however, one started crying when I held him and talked to him. I think he recognized my voice from telling his mom to do one more rep).
I'm now using Erin's "Postnatal exercise" DVD and find it very informative for explaining to them that their body needs to go through rehab before we start the more intense exercises. They both feel they are in better shape after these births than they were with their older children.
I would strongly recommend these DVD's to any expectant mother that wants to keep exercising through their pregnancy.

Giving birth to my 1st child was a very painful experience. I had a lot of tearing and couldn't sit comfortably for several months. I liked this video for a few reasons: instructor seems very sincere and compassionate, the segments are short, the segments contain similar exercises that become harder as you become stronger, but what i liked most was that THERE WERE NO EXERCISES WHERE I HAD TO SIT ON MY BOTTOM!!!! Sitting "indian-style" or on my sit-bones, etc. just was not possible for me after this labor so I was thankful that I could do every exercise in this video. I was sadly disappointed to find some of the other well-rated videos had so many exercises that I couldn't do.

So, this video may not be challenging enough for the mother with an easy delivery and a boot camp attitude, but for those who have had a difficult labor or who want to GENTLY ease back into exercising, this is a WONDERFUL video!

I bought this DVD about 2 months after the birth of my 5th baby. I have used it 4-5 times a week for the last 2 months and have seen some great results! When I began using this workout I had been pretty sedentary since my baby's birth. This DVD has 3 "progressions" to work through and I began with the first progression. I only did that one a few times as it is very easy and intended more for the first month or so after baby. So I moved up to the second progression and it was definitely challenging for me! However, after a few weeks I felt MUCH stronger and more toned and could easily get through the workout so I moved to the 3rd and last progression. I am about 4 months postpartum and my body is SO much stronger and more toned than before I started. The 3rd progression has really gotten my abs, butt and thighs into shape and also toned my arms. I am about ready to find a more rigorous workout now, but Postnatal Rescue really eased my way into life after baby. I feel great! I would recommend this for any new mom, but start it earlier than I did! No later than 6 weeks postpartum to get the full benefits of the DVD.

I like that she also includes some "Gentle First Stretches" to do right after your baby is born up until you're ready to start exercising again.

Also, Erin is a good instructor and I personally enjoy her style. My kids like her too. :) My two toddlers exercise along with me and my 10 year old daughter likes to repeat Erin's encouragements: "Yes you can, you've got one more in you!"
