Pregnancy and birth is the most beautiful, natural process, yet the fear surrounding it can be overwhelming for the expectant mum. Being mentally and physically prepared for labour and birth can decrease anxiety and help mums maintain a positive mindset. Pregnant women often find little or no time for exercising.
