The best pregnancy workouts on YouTube

Pregnancy fitness videos on YouTube

Throughout your pregnancy, it is important for both you and your growing baby that you keep fit and healthy, and keep your body in good condition. 

While long workouts at the gym might be out of the question during your pregnancy, there are lots of workouts you can do in your own home. 

You might also feel more comfortable working out in your living room, and less self-conscious than down the gym. 

Pregnancy fitness workouts on YouTube are a great way to keep fit in the comfort of your own home, and now we’ve all got smartphones, tablets, and smart TVs, it is easier than ever to stream YouTube videos to watch straight away. 

Check out our selection of some of the best pregnancy fitness workouts on YouTube. 

Mother&Baby pregnancy fitness workouts

With 10 videos to choose from, our quick workouts filmed with Joan Murphy, a co-founder of Frame fitness studios in London, show you lots of achieveable exercises for pregnancy. Once you’ve had your baby, we’ve got workout exercises to do with your baby too!

Pregnancy Yoga with Katy Appleton

Yoga is well known for it’s beneficial properties whether you are pregnant, trying for a baby, a new mum, or just a regular Joe needing to keep in shape. Not only will yoga strengthen and tone your body during pregnancy, but it will help you stay calm and centered too. 

Katy runs Apple Yoga, which offers yoga classes and workshops as well as online courses. With more than 2million views on YouTube, this one is a pregnancy yoga favourite. 

Second trimester workouts with Denise Austin 

If you’re looking for a more traditional workout, US-based Denise Austin has a range of fitness videos to keep you trim and healthy during your pregnancy. Lots of stretches and toning exercises to try. 

Third trimester workouts with Natalie Magee

Fun and cheery, these exercises will keep you fit from your front room. We’re also a bit jealous of the lovely gym setting! Natalie will urge you to work at your own pace and try to keep your heart rate under 130bpm. Always trust what your body tells you during exercise and check with your GP before working out. 

Pregnancy pilates (1-hour video)

A bit less strenuous than a yoga workout, but nonetheless excellent for toning and keeping fit, pilates is a great choice throughout your pregnancy. This is a one-hour-long video, designed by a physiotherapist, but you can break it down into smaller chunks to complete at your own leisure.
