For every woman, pregnancy is a journey. Doing pre-natal pilates will not only ensure you are strong and healthy, it will also have a positive impact on your baby’s mental and physical well-being.
There are numerous benefits to exercising during pregnancy including:
- Reducing your chances of gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia.
- Easing a lot of the niggling side effects like constipation, swollen ankles, varicose veins, and trouble sleeping.
- Ease lower back soreness, sacroiliac joint and pubic symphasis pain..
- Most importantly it prepares the body for birth and life as a new mum which is physically demanding on your body.
Pilates is a form of exercise designed to realign and re-balance the body. During pregnancy there are so many changes going on in your body that it is ideal to exercise to support this change, not challenge it. That’s why Pilates is a really safe and effective way to exercise during your entire pregnancy.
Pre-Natal Pilates is one of the best ways of developing optimal pelvic floor function, which is an important muscle during delivery, and to ensure a full recovery during the post-natal period.
Regular Pilates strengthens important stabilising muscles to help with preventing back pain from carrying the extra weight during pregnancy and relieves pregnancy-related injuries such as back ache and pelvic pain.
Providing all is going well, you can do Pre-Natal Pilates right through till the delivery of your baby. Once you are in the Post-Natal phase, we then provide Post-Natal Applied Movement classes to help you in your full recovery.
