Editorial Reviews

•3 Section Follow Along workout including modifications for all levels and stages of pregnancy •Warm Up with Joint Mobility exercises •Cool Down section with safe stabilizing and stretching exercises Lauren was 6 1/2 months pregnant when she filmed this workout, designing it specifically for expecting moms to prepare their bodies for delivery & stay in great shape. All exercises on provide you with the option to utilize kettlebells, dumbbells, or your body weight depending upon your level of comfort. •Warm and Cool down sections to naturally energize your body •Joint Mobility and Stretching •Lauren also provides alternative exercises without the kettlebell to substitute for your light day workout or if the weight training just gets to be too much. Doing this workout will increase your core strength which is vitally important for the delivery of your baby. Keeping your core strong will make pushing during the delivery easier. Exercise during pregnancy will improve your mood and make it easier to lose weight after your baby is born. Get your flat abs back in record time without doing crunches! A healthy baby starts with a Happy and Healthy Mom! With a more mellow and calming feel than her first DVD, Lauren, 6 ˝ months pregnant with her second child, introduces viewers to the benefits of exercise during pregnancy and the precautions that need to be taken when exercising during pregnancy, as outlined by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Once again, Lauren inspires. While many women may use the excuse of pregnancy to literally "eat for two" and stay away from the gym, the energy that Lauren radiates proves that making fitness and healthy eating a priority even during pregnancy is good for mom and for a healthy baby.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just for Pregnant Women April 9, 2009
First, let me say I am a newbie to kettlebell work and far from an expert on this subject. This DVD appears to have been designed for pregnant women who wish to keep training, but is probably not meant for a pregnant woman looking to start a new exercise regime. I am not pregnant, but I am not in fantastic athletic shape either, so I purchased this hoping it would challenge me, but not be so killer that I would give up in frustration. This routine is less intense than Lauren's first DVD, or Sarah Lurie's Iron Core I, which are my only other kettlebell DVDs. However, I am not saying that this work out is easy - Lauren is about 6 1/2 months pregnant and still puts me to shame. The DVD is chaptered and includes a joint mobility/warm-up, three workout sections and a cool-down stretch; if you do all of them together, it clocks in around 40 minutes. It is just Lauren, no background exercisers, and she takes you through two sets of various kettlebell and body weight moves in each of the three sections. For many moves, she shows modifications via picture in picture in the corner. She alternates between three different weight kettlebells depending on what move she is doing (but never uses more than one kettlebell at a time). I only own an 18# bell, so I just use that, except I use an 8# dumbbell to do halos for now. She does 2-handed swings, overhead swings, sumo squats, push-ups, lunges, triceps extensions and a lot of other moves I can't remember off the top of my head. If you need form pointers to learn the moves, you should check out Lauren's other DVD (or, ideally, meet personally with an RKC trainer). The music is soft & relaxing; Lauren's demeanor is calm & serious; the production values are very good. I am really enjoying this DVD. There is no dread factor for me and the slower pace allows me to focus on my form, rather than feeling I have to race to keep up and then getting discouraged. I am very happy with my purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Safe Challenge February 26, 2010
Verified Purchase
This is my second pregnancy and I have used Kettlebells before. This is a wonderful and challenging workout for any pregnant person who is familiar with either Kettlebells, crossfit, or body building prior to pregnancy. Proper form during the exercises may be difficult to achieve or understand for those who are new to working out or strength training. Those who are not confidant because they are new to pregnancy or working out may have concerns about trying different exercises, but don't worry it is all safe plus there is a modified version of each exercise shown in the video. Also, I would suggest coupling the video with additional stretching or a prenatal Yoga video. This is a challenging and effective yet safe workout. I am loving it, I will be using it as a postnatal shape up as well. If you like this video or are looking for a video like this but think kettlebells are no right for you might also want check out The Perfect Pregnancy Workout vol. 1.

I would recommend that once in your second trimester or further in your pregnancy you reduce the number of exercises you do with the kettlebell as you follow the video or consider doing just one of the workout segments per workout plus warm up and cool down. As well as, decreasing the amount of weight you use as you progress in your pregnancy. Plus remember to take water breaks and let your heart rate come down in between every circuit in the video.

Do not start this video if you have not been working out, are new to working out, and in your second trimester or further. I would think the combination of the three together would make this video way to difficult for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and challenging workout November 18, 2009
Verified Purchase
I am new to kettlebells and to pregnancy (it's my first time!). I got this DVD on the recommendation of my favorite women's fitness blog and I am very happy with my purchase. I believe that pregnancy is not a time to wimp out on working out. Although there are some obvious physical limitations, it's healthy for you and your baby to stay fit throughout your pregnancy.

We quit the gym to save money and I needed something to kickstart me back into working out at home. I wanted a workout that was somewhat challenging. I also wanted something that was fun to do. The Baby Bells workout is fast paced and the instructor (Lauren Brooks) moves you through the workout in a serious and straightforward manner. It's so great to see her beautiful baby belly too.

If you are into kettlebell training or simply want to try something new and stay fit throughout your pregnancy, I would highly recommend this DVD. This DVD is probably great for beginners and intermediates. Although, she uses kettlebells, she also instructs that each weight lifting movement can also be done with regular dumbbells. Each movement also has an unweighted option if you're uncomfortable with weights.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great workout, some experience required May 8, 2013
Verified Purchase
I like this DVD a lot. I think the workout works for before, during and after pregnancy so the price is a solid value. The workout is broken into 3 segments which I liked as an "express" option if pressed for time or just tired. If you went into your pregnancy fit and are looking for a safe but challenging option to keep using kettle bells or weights you will be happy with this DVD. I was pleasantly surprised to see that my heart rate was in a moderate range the entire time.

Here is one thing you should be aware of in this DVD. Lauren seems to assume some experience with kettle bells so the moves aren't broken down extensively. This is good for run time but potentially problematic if you haven't used kettle bells before. Although this DVD is designed for pregnancy you should remember that you can injure yourself doing kettle bells the wrong way pregnant or not.

If you haven't used kettle bells before or have limited experience with them I would strongly suggest doing the following:
1. Watch all 3 workouts in their entirely (without doing them) and make a note of any moves you haven't done before
2. Find instructional videos (YouTube has some) on how to do the move
3. The first few times you do the new moves have someone else watch you to see if what you are doing looks like how Lauren is doing it. Eventually you will be able to "feel" when you do it right but in the beginning having someone else there to tell you if you are off is important.
