This was a pilot video for the Department of Health that is planned to be rolled out in clinics across the Western Cape in South Africa. The video aims to to support health workers who work with pregnant women to encourage gentle exercise, improve their fitness and general wellbeing during pregnancy.
The video is demonstrated by a trained biokineticist, and shows basic strengthening exercises, upper body and leg exercises, and talks about exercises you can do in your own time, such as brisk walking and swimming. The video discusses the importance of exercise for pregnant mothers and also covers safety while doing exercise as well as all the health benefits of physical activity.
