Pregnancy 

Some say it's 9 months of pure bliss - some say otherwise!
 
But whether it's trying to stay fit while your pregnant, or seeing a 3D scan of your baby while it's still in the womb, we've got the links to help you make the most of the whole experience - dads included.
 
Antenatal Classes & Exercise
 
While your doctor will have details of antenatal classes near you, it's important to exercise after conception and before the baby's birth for many reasons - keeping stress levels down being the key one. The good news is that many gyms and instructors now offer more specialist classes for pregant women - aquanatal, pilates, yoga etc. - than ever before.
