Trying to concieve? Get to a healthy weight

Obese women who are trying to conceive should try dieting before immediately turning to IVF treatment as women who lost weight were three times more likely to fall pregnant, a study has found. You can read more in this article from the telegraph

This is only a small study, but the message is clear. Get to a healthy weight, eat well and take regular exercise and you are much more likely to get pregnant. You body needs to be in tip-top condition if it is going to nurture your baby for nine months and being obese means that you are going to be pre-disposed to medical problems for you and your growing baby. Think of pregnancy as a trigger event to change your life in a positive way. It is a challenge, but well worth it!



This is the only This is the only video i’ve followed thats allcatuy made me able to feel the TVA working properly. I use to keep breathing all the way and not feel any contraction but the whole sucking in while holding your breath works a treat. Thanks man.


Hi there, thank you for your comment. It’s very important to exercise your TVA regularly during pregnancy, but please don’t hold your breath! Try to engage your core but make sure you can breathe comfortably. Lucie x
