    Thanks for a great workout! I’ve been enjoying your videos since I was toning up for my wedding and a, so happy to have found some prenatal videos to continue with now that I’m pregnant. Thanks Jessica!

    Love your prenatal series! They’re the only videos I’ve found that really give me a workout without straining my core. I’m trying to avoid exacerbating any diastasis recti that might occur and these are great as they avoid plank, down dog and other positions that would separate my ab muscles. I can engage my core safely in these. Thanks!!

    Jessica loved the workout. Best prenatal strength workout I’ve found. Looking forward to a healthy pregnancy…22 weeks and counting.

    Wow! That was tough! I have now worked out with you and your husband, your mother, and your sister and of course Princess Peanut. I love that you get your family involved.

    I enjoyed this workout, too – thank you for providing great videos for pregnant women who want to be healthy but not overexert themselves. This really is just the right amount of exercise! I will definitely be doing these for as long as my body allows me to 🙂

    Thank you so much for this Jessica (and Courtney & Peanut 🙂 )! I love your workouts but have had to modify a lot of the moves since I’ve become pregnant. This was great 🙂
