Importance of Fitness during Pregnancy

Coming to fitness this book opens the new door of options to you.  With bear minimal exercise equipment, there are enough stretches and exercises covered in this book which gently works out all parts of body. And as the author rightly says, “What better gift for your little baby than the gift of health”.
