On Friday we went to The Baby Show in Birmingham. It was a really fun day out. We don’t get much of those lately, because of Thomas. But we enjoyed it and so did he!
At the Baby Show I got to talk to lots of people launching their new products from baby food pouches you can fill yourself to the latest in ovulation testing kits. I must admit, I wanted to buy everything! But the highlight of our day was interviewing the lovely Michelle Heaton.
Michelle was at The Baby Show to launch her new fitness DVD ‘Active Pregnancy’. Her son AJ, is only 11 weeks old and Michelle is already looking mighty fit and glowing!! I was so so grateful for the opportunity to interview Michelle because she really is a role model to anyone who is pregnant and that wants to stay fit and active. Actually she is MY role model now I’ve had a baby too and I really hope that she will bring out a post-natal fitness DVD!!
Michelle was polite, kind, friendly and really confident. She is a truly nice person, which made me like and respect her even more now I’ve met her in person. She met Thomas and we talked about baby boys eating a lot and not sleeping much haha
The DVD is really cool. Michelle filmed it whilst she was pregnant with AJ and the workouts are adapted to each trimester of pregnancy. The exercise regime therefore changes as the needs and bodies of the viewer change. She knows what she is talking about too, as Michelle is a trained fitness instructor with experience in pre and post pregnancy exercise. As well as exercise programmes, Michelle offers support and advice to those of us who want to stay fit and active during our pregnancies and post pregnancy. I love this about her- anyone promoting healthy active pregnancies and post pregnancy is really helping us mums. We need more people promoting healthy and active pregnancies!! It’s OK to workout during a healthy pregnancy, in fact, it lifts moods and helps us prepare for labour.
