Pilates for Pregnancy
Learning how to move well with your baby can help prevent injury. Physio-taught Pilates classes can teach you to engage your core muscles protecting your back and shoulders. After giving birth your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles are stretched and have often lost some of their strength and definition. New demands of being a mother such as breastfeeding, pushing a pram, picking up your child put strains on your body which can lead to aches and pains. It is important to build your core strength to assist in all the daily demands of motherhood. Not only does Pilates get your body stronger it will also tone your abdominal and gluteal muscles helping you get your pre-baby body back! Even better if you have been practicing Pilates during pregnancy your abdominal muscles will bounce back at a much quicker rate than would normally happen. If you have not done Pilates, now is a very good time to start!
