Meet Kiza!

September 11th, 2009

kiza and Zapphire-2Imagine my surprise when I opened up my e-mail and read that a mama needed my services in Trinidad! Kiza shared her story with me and has allowed me to share it. Thanks Kiza!

Kiza began bleeding 2 months into her pregnancy. It was initially ignored by her doctors but when it persisted and became heavy, she saw another doctor and had an ultrasound. At that early stage of her pregnancy, Kiza’s cervix was  dilating. Her doctors recommended that she have a cerclage which she did and she was also put on bed rest.

As all mamas on bed rest know, being on bed rest is maddening. 8 months into her pregnancy, Kiza was on the internet and found my website and Bedrest Fitness. She e-mailed me and I sent her a copy of the DVD. Here is what Kiza thought of the DVD in her own words:

“Congratulations Darline on creating an amazing product with your bed rest fitness programme. I was fortunate to be given a copy of your programme while I was on prescribed bed rest. The programme came into my life as a glimmer of hope as my stay in bed weakened my spirits. Though I got the programme in my eight month of pregnancy it did much my to boost my self-confidence. I began looking forward to my bed rest workouts. I now had something worthwhile to do as the day drew closer of me finally seeing my baby. I really enjoyed the Cat stretches lol. Though I did not get to put all training in practice (I had a C-section), I did benefit physically (my rapid weight gained slowed when I began the programme) and emotionally (I no longer felt sorry for my self). I highly recommend this programme not only for moms on bed rest but all women during their pregnancies. Thank you Darline.”

I am happy to report that Kiza gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby girl on May 13, 2009. Congratulations!
