    Money well spent! Having a guided movement practice that I feel comfortable is good for me in pregnancy has been very beneficial

  2. Michelle Walton

    Clear and easy to follow for any expectant Mom. I love Gail’s work

  3. Anonymous

    I think these techniques could be helpful in learning to relax.

  4. Ellen

    I do this routine in the evenings before bed, to spend time focusing on my body and my baby. It feels empowering, intimate, and like I’m doing something that will help my labor and delivery. Thank you, Spinning Babies!

  5. Beverly B.

    I am planning my first all natural childbirth, and i feel like the daily essentials are critical to achieving what i want. After 4 sunny side up deliveries, i am trying everything i can to get this baby in the most optimal position! I am especially happy with my purchase since i found out my daughter is breech. I hope these exercises encourage her to turn!

    I love this it has amazing yoga activities and tips on pregnancy/delivery comfort! I am excited for delivery and feel very amazing at 38 weeks, I feel this has done wonders for my pregnancy comfort!

  8. Renee

    I downloaded this video (and the Parent Class video) at 34 weeks when my baby was breech. After 2 weeks of doing the daily essential exercises, walking nearly 6km a day, and along with the Breech position (ironing board) exercise, my baby spun and got into the optimal birthing position. This was confirmed at my 36-week Malpresentation scan. I was elated!

    At first, hearing my baby was breech was disappointing news – however, Gail’s wisdom and advice brought me closer to my pregnancy experience and made it more 3-dimensional as I began to understand the relationship between Balancing my body, consciously working with Gravity for the baby to spin, whilst Moving, to help the baby get in the optimal birthing position. I became more educated and took greater control of my pregnancy, which has been (and still is) an empowering experience.

    If your baby is breech, transverse, or if you want to relieve your back pain and prepare for a better birth, I highly recommend investing in this video, as well as the Parent Class video.. now to rewatch and rewatch the Parent Class video to work with baby to engage in my pelvis and prepare for labour (which I’m looking forward to!).

    Fabulously put together!!
    I would however love to see a document or booklet to accompany this wonderful course/class, as it is deep in its content and much to remember – and not always able to access internet/computer to play it each time one does the exercises.
    The voice over with instructions is really beneficial too!
    I’ve found the exercises most helpful ?

    I’m pregnant and during Coronavirus it was my chance to try my best for my labor.

  14. Elle A.

    I’m so glad I found these daily essential exercises to do during my pregnancy. After doing this daily routine for a couple of weeks now, I can definitely say my body feels a lot less achy and a lot more balanced and healthy. Thank you so much.

  15. Hannah

    This video has been so helpful. I really love the yoga flow sequence at the end. Because of the pandemic going on right now, no in person prenatal yoga classes are being offered, so this video has been a huge help!

  16. Jessica O.

    This has been so helpful for me, during this time of covid19. I usually practice yoga 4 days a week, before and during my pregnancy. This has been a fabulous substitute since not being able to leave the house while 35 weeks pregnant. I’m going for a VBAC and hoping Spinning Babies will help facilitate that happening!

  17. Kaitlin McCarthy

    I was pretty disappointed with this video. First of all, it seems like a pretty basic pre-natal yoga class, which is fine, but I had somehow expected from your website I was getting something that was more from a PT perspective. But beyond that there are lots of very annoying aspects to the way the video is put together that shows a lack of forethought for usability. For something you are supposed to do daily, it’s pretty annoying that the “class” aspect doesn’t start until a few minutes into the video, so you have to scroll through to find the start everyday. Also, the way the class is lead makes it hard to follow along with. Like the video will just cut to the teacher having a prop, so then I have to pause the video and get my prop and restart the video when I have it to keep up. Also there are times when the teacher demonstrates full sets of somethings and other times when she doesn’t, etc. My final complaint is that (and while some people probably like this) the video had a lot of sappy flowery mommy language that I’m so exhausted of. I don’t want to feel my motherhood blossoming inside of me or any of that. That’s not part of my daily “essentials.”

  18. Jordan R.

    I started the Daily Essentials video around 20 weeks pregnant and I’m so glad I did. Now at 26 weeks I’m starting to have some back pain, but the essentials I learned and the yoga flow I’ve now memorized are helping me cope with the changes in my body. I’m so thankful for this video – an excellent resource for mothers-to-be!

    The stretches and exercises presented on this video have made me feel much more balanced in my third trimester than I felt with my first pregnancy, and confident about giving birth.

  20. Manuela

  21. Sarah

    I have been doing this yoga nearly every day and I feel so good! In addition to keeping me comfortable, the practice is also increasing my confidence in my body as I prepare for labor and birth.

  22. Élisa G.

    Super helpful video! Especially the yoga sequence, it really helps to relieve pelvic girdle pain 🙂

  23. Andrea

    Very easy to understand and follow along. Easy to implement in small bits or larger chunks depending on my day and schedule.

  24. Zoe

    Really informative and love the exercises and the tips for day to day movements

  25. Jamie

    Worth the small investment! I wish I would have started earlier in my pregnancy.

  26. Safire

    I was 23 when I delivered my first baby without an epidural. I bought both videos and attended a Hypnobirthing workshop. I honestly half a$$ed the Spinning Babies videos and didn’t do all the meditations from Hypnobirthing and I still had A WONDERFUL NATURAL BIRTH!!! Just practicing a little bit at a time goes a long way! If I can do it, so can you MAMA <3

  27. Christine R.

    Super helpful moves to help get ready for birth!

  28. Anonymous

    This is a great course. Clearly demonstrated the postures with great explanations. I felt the $16.99 is well spent for a smooth delivery!

    I was having so much trouble with back pain and sciatica. After implementing this video into my daily routine, I still have some pain at 38 weeks but it is substantially better.

  31. Cristina D.

    I love this program! I follow the stretching routine every day. It’s made a big difference! I’m no longer achy and tired but reenergized and can move more easily with my growing bump. My L&D nurse told me about Spinning Babies when I was in horrible painful labor because my baby was not in the ideal position. She immediately did Spinning Babies techniques with me and corrected baby’s alignment! So now with the second pregnancy I am practicing this every day. Thank you, Spinning Babies!

  32. Gurmit

    Great video

  33. Ana María Ramirez Nunez

    Easy to do and complet for every day.
    I recommend this video to all families.

  34. Daniella Y.

    It is a nice and gentle guided routine, easy to understand and perform.

  35. Anna

    Beautifully formatted, with helpful information. I love knowing the “why” to doing something and every exercise or habit change has a reason. My only frustration is having to find the daily yoga sequence on the digital platform where you have to skip through the whole program because there is no menu.

  36. Allison S.

    I am a runner and a weight lifter, and thankfully my body has allowed me to continue these activities throughout my first two trimesters. I have to thank Spinning Babies and my doula for the support and encouragement to stay active. I feel so grateful to have this daily practice to turn to. I have had SI joint issues prior to becoming pregnant so this daily practice was my first purchase from Spinning Babies, as I wanted to make sure to keep my pelvis balanced and stable. I look forward to purchasing more from Spinning Babies! Thank you for all the work you do. It’s very aligned with my goals for a natural birth. 🙂

  37. Dena Spielman

    Important for every woman – pregnant or not

  38. Natália

    It’s being really nice to do the yoga flow sequence everyday. I’ve been felling very well. It has also helped me with my back pain.

  39. Christina C.

    This has been a very helpful video to watch as I prepare for the birth of my second son. My first was posterior ending in c-section, so I’m doing everything possible to keep this baby in the best position possible to have a successful VBAC!

  40. Courtney

    There are some interesting poses shown at the first half of the video. However if you are doing prenatal yoga regularly or have been practicing yoga regularly they won’t be much different than what you are already doing. I was also not able to access the video through my phone so the portability was limited. I use this video as a resource but not daily b/c I do prenatal yoga daily.

  41. Carly P.

    I had this video recommended to me by my doula at the start of my 3rd trimester. I am only at 32 weeks, but since doing this video baby is already head down – something I was so nervous about! But even better than baby head down, is that I feel so much better in my body after I do the stretches. The yoga sequence is nice, but I prefer the longer stretching portion. I also really appreciate the tops on posture while walking and sitting. As well as the flashlight explanation – I had seen this talked about in other places and did not get it, nor why it was important. With this video I did and I am so grateful because it has really changed how I approach my pregnancy. Even my partner has noticed that I am moving better and with more ease even as I continue to progress. I now recommending this video to all my pregnant friends.

  43. Anne Ongyod

    This video is fantastic. I’ve been doing the yoga flow sequence every night since 23 weeks (I’m 34 weeks now). Both these movements and posture awareness have kept me flexible, mobile and comfortable even though I have a fractured lower vertebrae and frequently pick up my 25 pound son. The yoga flow is so relaxing to do before bed; I sleep great! Thanks so much for creating a program that is realistic and enjoyable to do daily!

  44. Maria A.

    I was recommended to Spinning Babies by my midwife and I absolutely love their Daily Essentials Class and the amount of information they offer on their website.

    I am currently on my second trimester and do these exercises daily. I am a yoga practitioner and have taught yoga as well, and I can say these exercises are helpful and doable to both, experienced practitioners and beginners.

    Would recommend to all pregnant mamas out there!

  45. Kira

    Easy to follow routine, helped with my low back pain

  46. Kassandra M. (verified owner)

    Lots of good info for the price. More daily stretches than I thought there would be.

  47. Allison E. (verified owner)

    The daily essentials exercises have been such a valuable part of my routine. The yoga sequence at the end is so soothing and empowering- exactly what I need in preparation from my attempt at VBAC. I’m so happy I listened to my friend who recommended I take a look at spinning babies!

    It was amazing and I learned so much. I can’t wait to do the rest.

  50. Lianna Gomori-Ruben (verified owner)

    Helpful and affordable for a home prenatal yoga practice! The materials have gotten me thinking a lot about my pelvis and how I’m sitting and resting. I appreciate it.

  51. Nancy Jarvis (verified owner)

    Awesome, nice and easy to follow and loving it. Thanks so much

  52. Clara (verified owner)

    great set of tips and excercises, I am 40 weeks and doing it every day to make sure baby is in the right position for birth but wish I started doing it all much earlier!!!
