Over the years, social media has made fitness during pregnancy fashionable, with many women using this platform to share fitness tips with their followers - inspiring many fitness fanatics and those who still aspire to live a healthier lifestyle including Takkies.

When asked how she is finding motherhood, Takkies says,  "I’m enjoying it so much, it’s such a blessing and it’s beautiful. I’ve always wanted to be a mother." 

In her last pregnancy, Takkies says she continued with her normal exercise routine, which included dancing, squats, boxing and I jogged a little. 

"As the baby became heavier, I changed my routine to suit my baby bump and I stopped burpees and lifting weights. But I still could exercise throughout my pregnancy and vorsho (dance move) till I gave birth," she said.
