    Wow, what a fab interview! Took notes all the way through and feel so much better about being able to advise pregnant ladies who come to my classes.

    Feel slightly irresponsible that I didn’t know all that before really!

    Thanks so much to you both!

    Thanks for a very interesting interview, it certainly makes you aware of how much there is involved in teaching ladies who are pregnant. I have took some notes, but unfortunately have to stop listening at the moment, I would like to read the info from her book as i can then refer to it as often as i need ! Where can i get the book from and what is the actual title ?

  • Justine O’Hara

    Fantastic interview! Thanks for all that information. I teach Pilates and I have just learned that one of my clients is pregnant. Have taken notes and I’m going to get Cherry’s book.
    One thing however that wasn’t mentioned is Aqua aerobics. Do the same principles apply? Obviously impact is reduced in water but are there any other specific points to be considered?

    Hi Justine, thanks for the great question. I think your best route is contact Cherry who will answer the question to the fullest, and will give some great information that you can use in your classes.

    Thanks again
