Celestine says she was not doing heavy exercises, all she was doing were kicks and stretching as advised by her trainer adding that Fridays were her best days as it was all but a day of dancing.

"Na si ati nilikuwa na chapa hio tizi saanaa, (I was not doing much) a few donkey's kicks and stretches. This was the only time tuliskizana na Freddie, like 'chapa tu tizi kidogo uende home' (do small bits and go home). Then Fridays were their mother. Kudance nayo tulidance," she added.

The mother of two urged pregnant mothers to do exercises under the guidance and advice of a doctor saying the benefits are immense.

"If you are paged and you feel you can do this, of course with permission from your doc, please do it. You'll love the outcome. Thanks to Stephanie for preaching this to us. I can now confirm that indeed working out while paged comes with so many health benefits, sana sana hapo kwa (more so in) faster recovery," Celestine advised.

Some of the benefits of working out during pregnancy include the reduction of backaches, constipation, bloating, as well as swelling which happens mostly on the feet and hands.

Other benefits are boosting one's mood and energy levels, helping one to sleep better preventing excess weight gain, and promoting muscle toning, strength, and endurance among others.
