It looks very professional with lots of pictures of happy mums and mums to be giving a very positive impression. The site is very easy to
navigate and is welcoming. Clear links and tabs with plenty of images as well. Links and examples of what was going on on Twitter and Facebook made it feel like a community. The colour scheme was clean, crisp and professional. The sign up process was easy and it took into account any personal circumstances that may impact on your ability to perform some of the exercises through a medical form. I have a disability and have had SPD during this pregnancy and was able to complete the details and receive advice about what was safe and which moves I should avoid. The Pilates videos had clear instructions and a couple of difficulty options for some of the moves. Throughout it was made clear that if anything felt wrong or if you were not feeling well that you could log in again another time and complete the workout. I think this is a good quality product and is helpful to keep you in a simple fitness routine. It does offer good value for money. It was great knowing that I could access any past workouts again, especially when I wasn’t feeling well enough to do one on the day I planned to. If you chose to you could do a workout everyday so this works out a lot cheaper than going to a class. Being able to stay at home was also nice! I would consider buying it as it kept me in a routine and was a good addition to my usual Pilate’s class and
active birthing classes. I’d recommend it to people who work and so may not be able to go to specific ante natal exercise groups as many tend to be in the day or to those with children already as it means you can do the workout at nap time or when the children are in bed without having to worry about child care. I really enjoyed the workouts and they left me feeling very relaxed. A great product if you are busy as it allows you to fit a bit of ‘me time’ into the day!

You have everything all in one place from exercise to nutrition advice and expert speakers. Easy registration and login process, and the website is easy to navigate. The packaging of the presentation of the online product is great. The instructions were great too; really easy to follow exercises. The quality is really good; a lot of expertise on the subject area. For me personally (on a maternity wage) I could not afford £144 per year for this product. I would be more likely to purchase a pregnancy DVD or use free online resources such as google, you tube, baby forums, sure start centres, one off exercise classes etc… I also found that I didn’t have the time or motivation to use the website as much as I would have liked. Unfortunately I could not afford the extra monthly payment and I would prefer to attend one off
exercise classes with the possibility of meeting new people. I would recommend to a friend that I think would be interested. Free trial membership was great with regular email reminders, newsletters and a Facebook page however I don’t feel I personally would benefit from a paid membership. Gemma De Cet – Thomas 3 Years

I thought this product would be great to help me keep fit for the birth. I thought the website presentation was a little jumbled and
could be more straightforward. However after getting used to it I was able to navigate around. The instructions were clear; this part was rather detailed and I found at times it stated a lot of things you would commonly know. The quality of the product was good and I found that overall it was a high standard in context. The website is value for money compared to the local classes but I think I would rather join a class. I would recommend this product but would also share my views at the same time. I found it very time consuming for a mother to be and existing mums who are pregnant. Feels very lonely and non-motivational but could suit some people. Min Cheung – Isabella
