Secret Saviours

Prepare your body for birth with these free exercise videos from underwear company Secret Saviours, designed to strengthen your core and look after your skin.

Having a baby uses the same amount of energy as running a marathon, and just as you wouldn’t attempt a marathon without any training, these videos will help your body get ready for labour. 

Secret Saviours, the anti-stretchmark underwear company, have teamed up with Natasha Brown, National Academy of Sports Medicine, (NASM) personal trainer, Pre and Post Natal Fitness Expert, to produce a series of exercise videos for women in their second and third trimesters. 

The exercises aim to future proof the body by improving core strength in preparation for birth.  They do not put any additional stresses and strains on the skin, so lessen the risk of stretch marks.
