Synopsis by Sally Barber
First introduced in 1983, Jane Fonda's Pregnancy, Birth and Recovery Workout offers a 45-minute prenatal and postnatal exercise routine, plus a 20-minute segment for postnatal only women. In addition, Fonda provides a 20-minute look at birth, baby massage, and infant care. The video is designed for active women who wish to continue to exercise throughout pregnancy, as well as the mother-to-be who wishes to begin a safe workout program during pregnancy. Some aspects of this video are not reflective of current exercise guidelines and recommendations. For example, Fonda and her participants work out barefoot, while today's guidelines suggest the use of shoes for stability. With a physician's approval, new moms may wish to add the following Jane Fonda videos to their routines: Stress Reduction Program, Complete Workout, and Low Impact Aerobic Workout.
