Great Safe Challenge Review by Jessy Ko "Mommy Shopper"

This is my second pregnancy and I have used Kettlebells before. This is a wonderful and challenging workout for any pregnant person who is familiar with either Kettlebells, crossfit, or body building prior to pregnancy. Proper form during the exercises may be difficult to achieve or understand for those who are new to working out or strength training. Those who are not confidant because they are new to pregnancy or working out may have concerns about trying different exercises, but don't worry it is all safe plus there is a modified version of each exercise shown in the video. Also, I would suggest coupling the video with additional stretching or a prenatal Yoga video. This is a challenging and effective yet safe workout. I am loving it, I will be using it as a postnatal shape up as well. If you like this video or are looking for a video like this but think kettlebells are no right for you might also want check out The Perfect Pregnancy Workout vol. 1.

I would recommend that once in your second trimester or further in your pregnancy you reduce the number of exercises you do with the kettlebell as you follow the video or consider doing just one of the workout segments per workout plus warm up and cool down. As well as, decreasing the amount of weight you use as you progress in your pregnancy. Plus remember to take water breaks and let your heart rate come down in between every circuit in the video.

Do not start this video if you have not been working out, are new to working out, and in your second trimester or further. I would think the combination of the three together would make this video way to difficult for you. (Posted on 6/9/2015)
So worth it Review by Jessica A. Tull

As a disclaimer, I'm not pregnant, but I'll sure save this DVD for down the road. I wanted to get into kettlebells, but I was concerned about my joints. I've had bursitis in my hips and knees, so I looked for a DVD that was low-impact. What I really like about this workout is that there are alternate forms for many of the exercises, which provides me with a way to complete the exercise without straining anything. There are some exercises here I just can't do, even with the alternate forms: the lunges and squats just aren't going to happen, so I'll walk in place until she moves on to the next exercise. I was very pleased with the variety of the exercises, and I thought the instructor was excellent. Even as a complete kettlebell beginner, I felt confident with her instruction. I just wish I could find more of her DVDs on Amazon! (Posted on 6/9/2015)
Works your butt out Review by Tmarie2010

This is an awesome workout. I love the fact that she is working with heavier weights during her 6th month of pregnancy. My husband has been driving me nuts with all of his worry about me lifing anything or continuing my workouts, I'm about to hit six months in a week, so it was nice to be able to point out that if the instructor can do it so can I. I'm a firm believer in not sitting around and getting fat and out of shape and want to maintain an active lifestyle during my pregnancy. This DVD will help me to that. (Posted on 6/9/2015)

Good challenging prenatal workout Review by MelissaLynn

This was the my main workout during my recent pregnancy. Most everything else I tried held no challenge. Other reviewers have summed it up well. If I had to say I anything negative about this, it would be that it seems rather low budget for the price. Didn't LOVE the music. And Lauren, while in FANTASTIC shape, doesn't seem thrilled to be there. I can't remember if she smiles even once! None of these were a deal breaker for me. Lauren's credentials are excellent. This workout is also an excellent intro to kettlebells. (Posted on 6/9/2015)
AWESOME KB Workout Review by Lori

I bought a Kettlebell last Summer and it came with a DVD that had three 15 minute workouts on it...I liked it ok but wanted something a bit more. Plus I was going to be trying for baby number two soon, so I wanted something to workout to while pregnant. I LOVE this workout DVD. I bought two other different workout pregnancy DVD's also and all I can say is this one Baby Bells is the only one I will be working out to. (Posted on 6/9/2015)
Great, not too wimpy pregnancy workout Review by Mrs. G

I was in the middle of training for a Sprint Triathlon and a Marathon in 2011 when I became pregnant with my first child. My husband has been training with KBs for sometime and already bought me some "ladies" weight kbs. I purchased one or two Pregnancy workout vidoes before this one (non-KB) and they are boring to tears! Because I am 40, my doc has told me not to run (though I think he is being overly cautious) so I am very frustrated not being able to get a good solid workout in that will keep me strong without putting my little one into danger.

THIS VIDEO is what I have been looking for. It's sufficiently challenging, well paced, and a good use of time. The instructor is extremely pregnant herself and demonstrates everything, and includes a modification caption. The video gets your heart pumping, but keeps moving, allowing you to pause the video for how long you need to catch your breath. I really like that, so the pace of the video is solid. I definitely feel this the next day.

If you're brand new, get it, and work your way into it, and if you've been exercising before, I think you'll be happy with this video, it'll keep you working. (Posted on 6/9/2015)
Excellent workout for fit pregnant ladies Review by S Hunter

I am six months pregnant, and wanted a dvd basically to keep strong during my pregnancy, and bought this one and Perfect Pregnancy Workout by Karyne Steben, which both fit the bill perfectly and were exactly what I was after. I'm a pretty fit and active person, some would say very fit and active;), and in my other pregnancies I was afraid to do too much so basically just walked through my pregnancies. I was in my early twenties when I had my first two children, so it wasn't so much of a problem bouncing back. But with my third pregnancy a couple of years ago I found it harder losing the weight and getting fit and strong again after my pregnancy, and now at 40 expecting my fourth baby, I wanted to keep up some sort of strengthening programme during my pregnancy aside from walking and swimming, but which felt safe as well. I am relatively new to kettlebells. I had just started trying them out a couple of months before my pregnancy, so wasn't sure if it was something I should continue through my pregnancy, so am rapt to have this dvd, and know that I am doing a safe workout with the kettlebells. Lauren is a great instructor, and easy to follow, and I like that there is no unnecessary chatter, and just good direct instructions along the way. I also bought her dvd The Ultimate Body Sculpt and Conditioning with Kettlebells Vol 1, and look forward to trying that out when I start into a programme after baby is born. Thoroughly recommend this for other pregnant ladies, if you are relatively fit and strong to begin with (not for beginners). I am passing this dvd onto my mum when I'm finished, as she is new to kettlebells, and I know she will enjoy it as a nice easy introduction to kettlebell training. (Posted on 6/9/2015)
Great way to do kettlebells while pregnant! Review by ballstar "sportstar"

I've used Lauren Brooks' Baby Bells workout for the past month and love it! I had started using kettlebells last summer and was worried that I would have to abandon them for some ho-hum workout once I got pregnant. Luckily, I stumbled on this DVD on Amazon while looking for a workout and I'm very happy. It's challenging without being overkill, and Lauren was 6 1/2 months pregnant while shooting the DVD, so it was nice to see that it could be done.

The DVD is broken down into warmup, workout, and cool-down. The workout section has three "rounds" of exercises (3-5 exercises per round that are repeated twice). Not all of the exercises involve a kettlebell/weight (e.g., side planks, pushups), and she gives the option of using dumbbells for people who may not have used kettlebells. Lauren also shows modifications for each of the exercises so that women who've never used kettlebells or prefer to not use weights at all can do them.

Highly recommend it! (Posted on 6/9/2015)
