5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD!, October 24, 2010
By J. Vries "bookish_woman" (Cape Cod)
I had been doing prenatal yoga in a studio and loved it! But they only had 1 class a week so I needed more. I purchased a prenatal yoga DVD and it was OK. But I have to say - at 25+ weeks pregnant and I was really not digging all of the flows - it just didn't quite feel natural to be doing many of the poses - I found myself dreading it and doing it less and less.
THEN I found this DVD. I have loved it! I love that the teacher is 34 weeks pregnant at the time of taping - it made me feel great about keeping up on it throughout my pregnancy. I love how each section can be done alone or together for a longer workout. I never get bored - the dancing, yoga and strength training all keep me engaged and feeling great.
It feels great on my hips, back and inner thighs- all muscles I need to deliver baby.
I love this DVD and am hoping to use this after the birth of my baby!
5.0 out of 5 stars My "HOLY GRAIL" Prenatal & Beyond Workout DVD, October 2, 2010
By Natasha Manka "Chic Therapie" (Fancy Treehouse, NC USA)
I am pregnant with baby #3. I say this because I'm pretty sure I have done all of the workout DVD's the world offers! I tried this one after reading the reviews. What got me is that ladies who were NOT pregnant were using it and loving it! THAT IS A GOOD SIGN. It means that no matter what it's worth it, because it has a longer life span that just your run-of-the-mill prenatal DVD
I was nervous about doing the dance portion because...well, it's been a LONG time since this mama danced! but there is an instructional on the DVD that goes slowly step by step. The best part about this workout is that it's FUN. AND IT'S A WORKOUT. I sweat. I felt like I got a workout [especially the next day..but in a good way] The music is not annoying, the voice is so sweetly pleasant, and I just felt SO renewed. there are different levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced. And this is a truly customizable workout! [HARD to get from a DVD!]
5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Buy!!!, September 4, 2010
After seeing how quickly my best friend rebounded from her pregnancy, I had to find out her secret. Not only was her first birthing experience a breeze, her pre-mommy figure was back in no time. You would never have known she just had a baby! Well come to find out, her secret was this DVD! Seeing the results she had inspired me to check out the DVD for myself. And although I was not expecting, this program actually gave me a great workout as well! I still use it to this day!!! So EVERYONE can benefit from it! Definitely a must buy!

I ordered this video and it's a wonderful soothing yoga video. The instructor has such a peaceful voice, you don't need to be pregnant to get the full value of this awesome yoga video.
5.0 out of 5 stars Recommend!, September 3, 2010
This is a beautiful well-made video. Kudos to Diane. When you use the DVD, it feels like she's next to you helping you with the poses! Two thumbs up!
5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Relaxing and Easy to Follow, September 3, 2010
Diane does a wonderful job making difficult moves EASY especially for someone who is expecting. Because your center of balance is off after a certain point of your pregnancy, you don't think you can do much of anything. Diane proved me wrong. Not only is she a calming and soothing presence, she makes the moves look and actually FEEL quite easy to do. I recommend her video 100% to all mothers expecting.

I am currently 37 weeks pregnant and have been using this DVD my entire pregnancy. I love that you can customize your own workout from the menu screen. I have found it to be a great way to stay in shape during my pregnancy and find it very relaxing. I have tried a couple of other Prenatal workouts and I must say that this is definitely a favorite!
5.0 out of 5 stars a MUST HAVE for a healthy pregnancy!, September 17, 2010
By CJ (New York, NY)
This DVD is the only complete prenatal workout video and a MUST HAVE for every pregnant mom! It was so much fun for me to stay healthy and in shape during my pregnancy which made the whole experience so much smoother. I love how this DVD gave me a variety of options to choose from so I could create my own customized workout each time! I never got bored and changed the difficulty level to fit my needs. I fell in love with the dancing and calmed by the yoga that I still do it even after my pregnancy. It's perfect for every woman's pregnancy, delivery, and recovery! Thank you Mommyshape for making my pregnancy experience so much better!
5.0 out of 5 stars love this DVD, September 10, 2010
I got this DVD early in my pregnancy and used it a few times a week- I found it very relaxing and it helped strengthen my mind and body for the birth of my beautiful baby girl. She was born in January and I was back in shape by April- I love this DVD and Diane Fong is an amazing yoga instructor!!!!!
