Many women want to continue exercising during pregnancy, but are concerned that physical effort could cause harm to themselves and their unborn baby.
Benefits Of Pilates During Pregnancy
Pilates is a gentle form of exercise and and for this reason it is considered one of the best forms of exercise for a pregnant woman.
Pilates can help maintain and improve the strength of both your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, it is not only a safe form of exercise while pregnant, it can also help you doring your labour.
Many women first attend Pilates classes during pregnancy or in post natal recovery.
Classical pilates exercises can be adapted at each stage of pregnancy to allow for gentler or more focused exercise, but should stop if any discomfort is experienced.
The right type of pilates should not cause strain on the joints or lower back. In fact the back should be strengthened as will the stomach and muscles around the pelvic area – allowing for an easier pregnancy, delivery and recovery.
