Frequently asked Questions
It is safe to exercise all the way through your pregnancy, including the first trimester. It really helps with the nausea and fatigue.
However the first trimester is associated with the highest risk of miscarriage. For this reason our preference is to accept women from the second trimester onward, when the risk is substantially reduced. Also, a specific pregnancy exercise programme is not usually required in first trimester.
- Gym ball : Please note the correct size ball depends on your height:
Between 5 feet 2 inches and 5 feet 9 inches – 65cm ball
Taller than 5 feet 9 inches – 75cm ball.
A quick check is that when you sit on the ball that your hips are slightly higher than your knees.
- Wide Resistance band 1.5 m
- Exercise Mats are provided in the classes but you can bring your own if you wish
- Light Weights 1-2 kg weight ideally

It is safe to exercise with twin pregnancies but it is more challenging on the body. Therefore, we recommend women join classes early and to consider our online Finding relief classes as the pregnancy progresses. We are here to support and guide you particularly with twin pregnancies, so regular communication is encouraged.
*If you are not suitable to attend classes when pregnant with twins due to medical reasons, we would highly encourage you to join the Bump Room Community for your postnatal rehabilitation.
