I have been using this dvd for the last 3 months of my pregnancy but wish I had found it before ... The yoga is simple enough for the beginner, which I was, but because there are three different sessions it never gets boring. It also really helped with my back pain. I cannot recommend this highly enough - I'll be buying it for all my pregnant friends. A truly inspirational dvd.

Having been nauseated by the last yoga video i bought, i was glad to find Nicole Croft's DVD during my latest pregnancy. She was a godsend during my last few months when i practiced the intermediate session several times per week. The sessions are well shot and executed and the voiceover is calm and relaxing, guiding you through the poses at a comfortable pace. I really felt physically in control of my contractions when it came to the birth in part due to the confidence that my yoga preparations had given me, of which this DVD played a large part. I bought 2 more copies for friends.

Nicole's yoga DVD has been an indispensable part of my pregnancy, alongside her weekly classes. The DVD allows you to choose between 3 practice session ranging in duration and ability.
Following Nicole's clear and concise instruction allows you to follow a practice session with ease whilst experiencing an enhanced attunement with one's ever changing body and mind throughout this life changing time.
The filming assists you in seeing postures clearly with an additional image in the corner of the screen that highlights specific areas of focus or alternatives to the main posture shown.
I would highly recommend this DVD to any woman in pregnancy. I can only hope that there is a post natal DVD in the pipeline!

I've always practised a lot of yoga during my pregnancies and this is one of the best DVDs I've come across to replace proper classes which I can't attend now due to knee problems.

It's well written and designed, not patronising, it's not all artsy and full of tacky music; it's just a simple selection of yoga workouts designed for any level of experience and clearly labelled for each stage of pregnancy. Nicole is easy to follow and offers easier positions for people who might find some of the stretches uncomfortable. You don't need a lot of fancy equipment - a yoga mat is helpful but you could substitute it for a simple blanket if you're practising on carpet. She does use a strap at points but the same effect is easily achievable with something like a tie or a scarf.

The breathing and relaxation techniques are a really helpful tool for labour and it's easy enough to practice for 30 minutes or so a day if you can find the time. Highly recommended :)

I bought this DVD on the back of the reviews it had received on Amazon and I have not been disappointed. The DVD is clear, well paced and, thankfully, doesn't have the typical yoga music on it.
I thoroughly recommend it, mostly because of the choice of the workouts. It has workouts of varying lengths to fit in with your busy, or not so busy, day.

Inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, Nicole offers a wonderful introduction to Yoga for Pregnancy with three guided sequences. These are of varying lengths and adapted to suit different stages of pregnancy from 14 weeks to full term. Beautifully filmed, Nicole elegantly demonstrates the postures while 6 months pregnant, with clear background instructions. The timing is very good and one really gets the feel of the flow of the asanas guided and facilitated by the all important breath. The DVD aims to empower and help mums to be at all stages of pregnancy, offering a simple to follow guide which can easily and safely be used at home. Excellent. Yoga & Health magazine.

I disagree with the reviewer who says this dvd is dull. I have liked it specifically because of its simplicity. There is no music, but this is great because there is no chance of getting bored of new age music on a loop and I have been able to do the yoga to either whatever soundtrack i choose or to no music at all so that i can focus on my breathing which i found a useful tool during contractions in my previous two labours. The yoga, as you would expect of pregnancy yoga, is relatively gentle (though i find session 3 a proper workout) but it definately helps. Even though i only manage a session once, maybe twice a week, i can feel my back strengthened and always sleep amazingly well afterwards. This is my 3rd pregnancy and so I have tried other yoga dvd's but think that this one stands head and shoulders above the rest. I would really recommend this dvd and have been telling my pregnant friends to buy it.

The truth is, whenever I've tried yoga in the past, I've never really liked it. I've always wanted to like it, but never did. This is the first yoga class (both DVD and at the gym) that I've liked! It is very relaxed, helps me with my breathing, and makes visualizing what's happenning to my body easy.
I definitely recommend this DVD! I'm in my 18th week, was able to do all the positions in the beginner 30 minute session without difficulty.

I was practicing yoga before pregnancy so I got several prenatal yoga dvds to help me continue the practice after I became pregnancy. Unfortunately I found this one the dullest and uninspiring. As some of the previous reviews have also mentioned, the voice in this dvd leading you through the practice is so flat and almost robotic that almost seemed she was also bored or something! The practice itself is ok - calm and not very challenging. But along the practice there isn't much explanation on the benefits or purpose of certain postures, either. So I felt like basically I'm just following a dull and flat voice through different postures. And because of the overall 'cold' atmosphere throughout, I don't particularly enjoy the practice, either. If you're thinking about getting one or a couple of pregnancy dvds, I'd suggest you skip this one and go for either Shiva Rea's or Tara Lee's -both are great and actually complement each other (to me at least), plus both are doing a great job making you more aware of your practice with a baby inside and of the benefits of certain postures that could be useful in labour.

This dvd had everything I was looking for. I was pregnant with my second child and I had done a yoga class with my first, but didn't have the time for this one. I found the different lengths of sessions helpful at each stage of my pregnancy and I found Nicole to be clear in her explanation of the moves, and I liked the fact that she allowed you to hold each move with her for the right amount of time to really get the benefit of it. I still use some of her moves for general stretching and movement post babies and I recommend her dvd to all my friends who have also used it religiously. i couldn't recommend it more highly.
