This contest is closed!

The winner will be announced on Monday January 3, 2011. Good luck to everyone who entered!

Acacia Fitness DVDs has provided this workout DVD for review by giving away a brand new copy of Complete Pregnancy Fitness with Erin O’Brien for one lucky DiaperSwappers reader!

Remember that when you are pregnant be sure to consult your doctor or midwife before starting any exercise program.

Complete Pregnancy Fitness with Erin O’Brien on DVD is a 2 DVD set. The first is for use while you are pregnant, the second is for getting back in shape afterwards. Erin O’Brien is a certified prenatal exercise specialist as well as a certified postnatal exercise specialist, plus she instructs these videos while being there first hand within the pregnancy then post-pregnancy experience.

DVD 1 – Prenatal Fitness Fix with Erin O’Brien

There are two workout sessions on this DVD.

Part one is 40 minutes long and can be completed completely in your living room. 40 minutes is lengthy workout for anyone, especially when pregnant, which is why you can select from the “Chapter Index” where they have broken it up into 5 workout segments.

What you will need for this workout:

– Coffee Table

– Chair

– Couch

– Mat or Towel

Already you’re seeing that this workout is made to be done at home. With this practical approach it’ll be easier to stay motivated and actually find time to exercise.

Part two gets your partner involved in your exercise. Pregnant women still need strength training but must be very careful, so a little helpful but supportive physical resistance makes for the right balance. But if you’re uncomfortable with this part, just skip it. The first part is plenty effective enough.

And just so you know, the second part features James Denton (Desperate Housewives) since he is the real life husband of Erin O’Brien.

DVD 2 – Postnatal Rescue with Erin O’Brien

It’s amazing to see the transformation in instructor Erin O’Brien’s demeanor after having children. It’s clear that experiencing the physical challenge of childbirth changed her perspective not only exercise but on the female body. She also clearly gained insight into the emotional ramifications as well. What’s wonderful about this is she no longer comes off as the happy jock where pregnancy is so easy, instead she expresses empathy and patience.

Start with the introduction and be forewarned that you must wait 6 weeks to begin this workout DVD only if you have been cleared by your doctor to do so. The DVD is set up in 3 progression stages that work on rehabilitating your body. It’s not about trying to have a perfectly flat belly afterwards, it’s about rebuilding your body’s health and restoring proper function. She slowly guides you through the process in a realistic manner.

    I’m 16 week pregnant and am finding it increasingly difficult to head to the gym (and when I get there people ask if I should be doing that. With more home friendly workout, I can still get the workout I love without the questions and knowing that I’m doing it a safe way. It’ll keep me in shape so next fall I can be up a going again!

    Well, I MIGHT have a reason to use this, but I can’t confirm that, lol. However, after my daughter was born, I tried to (cleared by doctor) go ahead and start exercising. So I did a bunch of sit ups and ruptured my gut and ended up with a hernia I didn’t get fixed until 9 months later. Add that to the C section and prior surgery, and my stomach is nothing but a flabby mess. I’d LOVE an easy at-home program I can do that’s ‘safe’ if I *were* pregnant, ya know? I’m scared to do anything for fear of another rupture and a 4th abdominal surgery totally rendering my abs useless. Does that count as to how I would benefit?

    I’m pregnant with my fourth and haven’t totally lost the weight from baby number two, or three. I will have about sixty pounds I will need to shed and would love any assistance.

    I could def use this! I’m about 8 weeks along with #2, and sadly, the weight that I lost with DD came back before we got pregnant (stupid birthcontrol). Currently I’m out walking since the weather hasn’t been too bad out here, BUT once march/april hits, the temps will start climbing and I wont be able to be outside much (it get 105 degrees + in the summer). I would love to put DD down for a nap and do a work out (with the a/c lol).

    I’ve had 6 kids now, all 16-23 months apart. I’ve not been able to lose the baby weight since the 3rd baby. I’ve been looking for a good pregnancy workout DVD, I’d love to try this one!

  7. laurangel on January 2nd, 2011 5:24 am

    I’d love to try this exercise DVD! We’re currently TTC #2, and I’d like to stay in better shape with this baby. I didn’t gain too much weight with the first, but I did close to ZERO exercise!

    I will have my third baby within 3 years and feel so week and tired, that I do not know where to get the strength from to push this baby out (3 more months). Good exercise should help me!
