Trying to fit exercise into your day when you are a busy mum can be a challenge. At The Healthy Mummy we understand this, and this is why we have created The Healthy Mummy Post Pregnancy Exercise DVD. The DVD contains safe and effective workouts that you can do in the comfort of your own home.
The workouts burn approximately 450 - 550 calories per hour and will help tone up the key areas of your body such as your tummy, hips and thighs.
The DVD can be followed by all mums (for example: new mums or mums with older children) and can be followed by someone with a basic or a more advanced level of fitness.
Lisa Westlake is our incredible fitness instructor and postnatal exercise specialist throughout the DVD. With her extensive physiotherapy experience and qualifications (Lisa is one of the most awarded fitness professionals in Australia), Lisa is the perfect fitness instructor to bring The Healthy Mummy Post Pregnancy Exercise DVD to life - you will love working out with her.

The exercises in The Healthy Mummy Post Pregnancy Exercise DVD won't just assist in the improvement of your overall fitness levels, they'll also help burn calories, improve your core strength and strengthen your pelvic floor.
The six workouts are broken down into 10 and 15 minute sections that you can do when it suits you - or, if you have the time and energy, you can do the DVD as one 70 minute continuous workout. The Healthy Mummy Post Pregnancy Exercise DVD also covers special considerations post-birth, such as caesarean sections, back strains, muscle separation, incontinence and pelvic floor issues.
