Pre/post natal Pilates Classes

Pilates can be highly beneficial for pregnant women. Here’s why:

1. Improves Core Strength

Pilates focuses on strengthening the core muscles, which include the abdominals, back, and pelvic floor. This helps support the extra weight of pregnancy and reduce the risk of back pain. (Personally I had zero back pain during pregnancy).

2. Enhances Flexibility and Mobility

Regularly doing Pilates practice improves overall flexibility and joint mobility, which can help alleviate some of the discomforts associated with pregnancy, such as tight hips and lower back stiffness. ]

3. Promotes Better Posture

Pilates encourages proper alignment and posture, which can help manage the changes happening in your body’s centre of gravity as their baby grows. Good posture can also help reduce strain on the back and neck.

4. Reduces Stress and Promotes Relaxation

The breathing techniques used in Pilates can help reduce stress and promote relaxation. This can be particularly beneficial during pregnancy. 

5. Prepares the Body for Labour

Pilates exercises helps strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which play a crucial role during labour and delivery. A strong pelvic floor can also aid in post-delivery recovery. (As someone who had an episiotomy and a 3rd degree tear, I can say that Pilates is helping my pelvic floor recovery). 

6. Supports Better Balance

Pregnancy can affect a woman’s balance due to changes in weight distribution. Pilates helps improve overall balance and coordination, which can help prevent falls and other balance-related issues .

7. Helps with Pain Management

Pilates can help alleviate common pregnancy pains, such as lower back pain, hip pain and sciatica, by strengthening supportive muscles and improving flexibility .

8. Aids in Postpartum Recovery

Regular Pilates during pregnancy can facilitate a quicker postpartum recovery by maintaining muscle tone and core strength throughout pregnancy. It can prevent diastasis recti.

Postnatal classes allow you to bring your baby along to class. This means you get the chance to exercise without worrying about childcare. Your baby is there with you. If you need to stop to attend to them, you can, without worrying about disrupting the class.
