Why is Pilates good for pregnancy?


Pre Natal Pilates

During pregnancy your body undergoes huge changes; physically, emotionally and hormonal. Exercise in general needs to be altered to take these important factors into account.

Pilates can help you prepare for the physical demands of giving birth and provides such benefits as:

  • Helps maintain and improve the condition of both your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles
  • Helps promote relaxation and alleviates stress
  • Helps reduce back pain and tension
  • Helps maintain and improve posture



Post Natal Pilates

Post natal exercise and Pilates can be started approximately from 6 weeks (normal delivery) but consult with your doctor or medical professional first before doing so. The aims of post natal Pilates are to:

  • Strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, weakened by pregnancy.
  • Retrain your abdominal muscles to help support your spine and pelvis and recover your pre-baby shape.
  • Re-educate correct posture following the natural changes in your body through pregnancy.
  • Strengthen your upper body teaching you how to lift and hold your growing baby to avoid back problems.
  • Help regain/correct posture.
