Pilates is very safe to do pre- and postpartum. It is so important for women to try to keep moving. As a mother of two, I have learned this the hard way. A lot of changes occur in the body and moving will help you strengthen and stretch these adapting muscles, along with helping our mental health and taking time to ourselves.
Any issues or injuries previous can be highlighted during pregnancy as the joints become more lax during and up to 9 months post pregnancy. Pregnancy Pilates will give you the foundations and understanding of how to help position and secure your body in a safer space and get your body ready for labour and beyond.
“If we don’t look after ourselves, how do we expect to look after others”.
Exercise is important during pregnancy as it helps strengthen up your limbs, increases awareness within the body, helps maintain weight and self confidence. Women who exercise during pregnancy tend to have a shorter labour and fewer delivery complications. Each session varies in intensity and duration depending on the stage of pregnancy and energy levels on the day. The Pre-Natal Pilates can be done on a private 1-2-1 basis or group.
There are recommended guidelines of 6-12 weeks after birth to start back exercise depending on individual circumstances. Some mothers will be given Pilates based rehabilitation exercises before leaving the hospital to help them recover after birth and we can help you continue and progress these. The Post Natal Pilates can be done on a private 1-2-1 basis or group.
