In this easy-to-use, illustrated book, Jane Simons, a leading obstetric physiotherapist, shares her passionate commitment to help women take the best care of themselves during the nine months of pregnancy.

Pregnancy is a time when unexpected aches and pains appear. Powering through Pregnancy' will firstly show you why in clear, non-medical language with line drawings to help you understand the way the anatomy all fits together.

Jane Simons then describes the exercises that she teaches so successfully to her pre-natal classes. She tells you how and why they're doing you good as well as when they're not suitable. Each exercise is illustrated with a photograph for easy reference. There are also break-out boxes with handy hints such as which exercises will be good in labour.

In the final section, exercises suitable for specific pains during pregnancy, such as lower back or coccyx pain, can be referred to conveniently.

Pain Free Pregnancy is a fantastic resource guide for any pregnant woman and a useful present for anyone who cares about a pregnant woman.
